Extend your Drupal 7 sites with custom modules, which allow you to create everything from admin interfaces to forms. Author Jon Peck describes how modules extend your base Drupal installation, then walks through how to write your own module with a practical example featuring geo-positioned alternative energy centers. The course also describes how to control access to site features, create new content types, build forms, understand data persistence, embrace coding standards, and much more.
Before starting this course you should have a basic knowledge of the PHP language and have written a few scripts. Without this background you may lack the context necessary to understand what you are doing which will not serve you well. If you're looking for some background or a refresher, I recommend PHP with MySQL Essential Training with Kevin Skoglund here in the lynda.com online training library. Performing a site installation of Drupal 7 and module installation is considered out of scope of this course. Drupal 7 Essential Training by Tom Geller here in the lynda.com online training library provides several chapters on installing Drupal in several different environments along with the foundations of module management.
