How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 1: the Administrator

How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 1: the Administrator

For quite some time, Joomla development has been the most requested topic by OSTraining members.

I’m delighted to release another in a series of several Joomla development classes. We’ve worked with Cory Webb, a Joomla developer since 2005, to produce a series of classes on building Joomla extensions.

This new class is called “How to Develop Joomla Components. Part 1: the Administrator“. These videos follow on from “How to Develop Joomla Modules” and “How to Develop Joomla Plugins“.

About the Joomla component development class

In today’s new class you’ll learn how to build the administrator area for a to-do list component.

Cory is going to show you how to build the file, folder and database structure. You’ll learn how Joomla uses the Model, View, Controller pattern to make the component operations. You’ll also see how to add access control, categories, scripts and language translations to your extension.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this class, where we’ll build the visitor-facing section of the same component.
