Course Description:
Our Introduction to Module Development class provides a hands-on crash-course in writing custom modules for Drupal 7.

Students follow along in individual development sandboxes as we guide them through putting Drupal’s APIs to work. The focus is on learning the most commonly used Drupal hooks and functions for custom and contributed modules, and practicing best practices in solving Drupal problems. Printed manuals will be provided for in-class and post-class use.

Attendees will leave the class with a working knowledge of Drupal’s menu, permissions, form API, and database systems. 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.)
