(swipe) - Hi this Joe LeBlanc with Joomla! 1.7 programming and packaging extensions. In this course we'll walk through how to install minimal extensions, create a backend interface, filter database results, configure development tools, make URLs human readable, and translate the user interface. And we'll also build a custom component, a module, a language file, and several plugins. Then we'll package the final code so it's installable on any Joomla! Site.
