"Intro to module development" Hands-On Training - Zivtech

Class Description

Our Introduction to Module Development class provides a hands on crash-course in solving specific problems by building custom modules. This training focuses on how to approach a specific problem that existing modules simply do not solve. Students follow along in individual development sandboxes as we guide them through putting Drupal’s API’s to work. Attendees will leave the class with a working knowledge of Drupal’s menu, form and hook systems as well as the database layer. At the end of the class students will receive a copy of the finished module which includes additional well-documented examples of advanced topics such as update scripts, programmatic content type creation and Views integration for our custom database tables. (PREREQ: A basic knowledge of PHP is required for this class.)
