This comprehensive two-day hands on training course is targeted at developers who want to learn more about configuring, customizing, and extending CiviCRM to meet their organization / client needs. You don't need to be a 'developer' to attend but you should have basic PHP and MySQL skills, and be familiar with (or at least ready to dive into) the CiviCRM code base.

Agenda

We try to be flexible with the agenda to meet participant needs and expectations, and the final agenda may change. 

At its core is a set of sessions that cover everything you need to get your development environment up and running, and to start writing extensions and improving core.

Topic areas include:

  • How CiviCRM works - code layout and architecture
  • Extending CiviCRM - hooks, APIs, custom PHP files and templates.
  • Native Extension - civix and more.  
  • Testing - unit tests and webtests
  • Advanced features - message templates, batch update via profile, checksum authentication, command-line scripts.
  • Internationalization - including translation tools and multilingual sites
  • Debugging - tips and tricks

If there is something specific that you would like to see covered, please let us know.
