Following up with some feedback on another forum post [1], I'm pleased to announce that our publisher Wiley has agreed to release the code examples for the English book under BSD license. This enables me to put them online on GitHub:

There's one gotcha: The book examples were written for SilverStripe 2.3.0, which currently only works with PHP 5.2.
Would anybody be willing to test the projects on SilverStripe 2.3.7 and PHP 5.3? I don't expect big problems, its just a bit of manual testing.
If you're keen, please fork the repo and send me pull requests with any bugfixes.

Also, is anybody willing to go through the existing (code-related) book errata on the wiki and fix them in the examples? ( Again, git pull requests are the preferred way to send those back.
