Room two: Developing Modules for 2.0
Capitalizing on the training day delivered at DevMoot back in March, our lead programmer, Robert Campbell (Calguy) presents a day’s training on developing Modules for CMSMS 2.0.
Guiding you through each step of the build, the Robert will create a simple ‘Holidays’ module as an ongoing example. You’ll see how to create the module, setup installation and language, add in admin functions, add, edit and delete records and run the module on the front end. Search engine friendly URLs, asynchronous loading, and working with other modules are also fully discussed. Plus, much more.
This is a great training day for both new and experienced module developers. Whether you are starting your first journey into module development or simply want to compare your methodology with the Dev Team’s, you’ll find this day invaluable.
We’re sure you will find this day invaluable. We’re looking forward to seeing the great modules that you come up with. So book in to GeekMoot for both the conference and the training day and start your adventure!
