The Second Edition of Joe LeBlanc's book "Learning Joomla! 1.5 Extension Development" is now available from PackT. Normally, I would recommend buying the book through the Joomla! Shop since the project gets an added bonus, but the title is not yet available. (When it is available, I will update this post.)
If you want to develop using Joomla!, or if you are looking to strengthen your skills, I recommend this step-by-step guide to creating Joomla! 1.5 Components, Modules, and Plugins. By following the examples and instruction in the book, you can learn to build a fully functioning set of extensions, complete with SEF URLs, the ability for visitor interaction (including comments) and backend administrative capabilities. Downloadable code examples are provided with the book.
The pair are a perfect combination to help a developer get an excellent start and provide the necessary support as skills grow.
