Upcoming Drupal 7 Module Dev Training at Drupalcon Chicago

Jan 20, 2011

We are very pleased to announce our pre-conference Drupal 7 Module Development training session at DrupalCon Chicago, taking place on Monday, March 7, 2011. The session will be held in the University of Chicago's Gleacher Center, located moments away from the Sheraton Chicago Hotel, AKA Drupal Tower, the venue for this Drupalcon.

The Session

This session is definitely a must for anyone looking to take their PHP skills into the realm of Drupal 7 module development. The training will be headed by Zivtech's Jody Hamilton and Howard Tyson; on hand throughout the session to answer any questions that arise. Attendees will be putting Drupal 7's revamped API to work during the session to build a complete Drupal module, and will leave the training with a working knowledge of Drupal’s menu, form, and hook systems, as well as the database layer. At the end of the session, attendees will also 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.
