How do you learn how to develop in Odoo or OpenERP
Like most any valuable skill, you will need to invest effort in learning how to develop for Odoo / OpenERP. Fortunately the Odoo framework significantly reduces how much raw code you must write to implement a solution. While building a module in Odoo requires you learn some Python most of the learning curve and time you will spend is going to be understanding the strengths and limitations of the Odoo framework. This is why development training in Odoo or technical training in Odoo must begin not just with learning Python, but with a focus on the development process, how the framework is put together, and what the basic requirements are to build an Odoo module. While it helps if you have a good knowledge of Python, many of the modifications to Odoo can be made with relatively few Python commands. Once you learn those you will be well on your way to writing Odoo applications.
Odoo Development - Where do I start?
This video series was created for those who want to start learning how to build Odoo applications today. Volume One OpenERP / Odoo developer training is for beginners who want to see step by step exactly how to build an Odoo application from scratch. While there are some guides out there and a few short videos on Odoo development, it was frustrating not having a comprehensive Odoo developer training option. That is whey we created an Odoo development series that starts with the basics and moves on from there. Writing applications for Odoo is not hard if you know where to begin. For example, there is a simple structure for creating an Odoo module with basic file requirements. We go through making each of those from scratch so you can see exactly how everything fits together.
In our Odoo developer training we start with adding additional fields and information to our standard Odoo installation. One of the more common modifications you will end up making in implementing Odoo systems is additional new content and fields that are specific to a given industry. In a veterinary clinic for example the breed of the animal is a piece of information that you simply would not find in any generic financial, sales, or even point of sale application. Once you have some training in Odoo development, you can extend Odoo with additional content and data relatively easy. Even after just volume one OpenERP developer training you should be confident in additional fields to forms and displaying them in views within Odoo.
Does this developer training work for Odoo 7 and Odoo 8?
Now that Odoo 8 has been released many are asking if the Odoo Developer Training videos are compatible with Odoo 8. The videos are still very appropriate and most modules currently (Oct 2014) within Odoo are written using the API that is covered in Odoo Developer Training Volume One & Two. Odoo 8 has just been released and most programmers are still doing much of their work with the Odoo 7 API as that is what they are familiar with. Even with the new Odoo 8 API it is still very important that an Odoo developer understand the core modules as they are written with the previous Odoo API. We don't believe the new API makes the old API obsolete but rather provides additional options and capabilities than were previously available. In the upcoming months we expect to release additional more advanced videos that explore the new Odoo 8 API in depth.
Volume One Pre-requisites
Volume One focuses on primarily on learning from the beginning how to develop modules for OpenERP / Odoo. It is assumed you have never used Python before and each line of code is typed out so you can follow along. If you have never programmed at all before you can still follow right along. However this course will not teach you to be a programmer. If you wish to develop more complex modules you will need to get volume two of the series which teaches more Python commands.
You should already be comfortable with using OpenERP / Odoo for basic operations. Naturally, before you develop for OpenERP / Odoo, you should have a general idea how the software works. It is also very beneficial if you have some experience installing OpenERP / Odoo and how to get around in the operating system, create folders and documents, and edit files. For this video series, we use Ubuntu for the OpenERP / Odoo installation however the development aspects in Windows or other operating systems will be the same. Overall though, we do recommend Ubuntu for both development and production implementations of OpenERP / Odoo. There are many tutorials and guidelines available to help you get up to speed with installing and running OpenERP.
