Training: Introduction to Drupal 9 Module Development


Module development for Drupal is more powerful than ever with Drupal 9. Object-orientation, the maturity of Drupal's various APIs, Drupal 9's underlying Symfony (and other) components, and the maturity of Drush means that developing for Drupal 9 requires some new knowledge for existing Drupal 7 and PHP developers. This workshop is designed to introduce existing Drupal developers as well as (non-Drupal) PHP developers to some of the techniques and concepts for Drupal 9 module development. The workshop includes an overview of some of the main concepts and tools as well as several hands-on module development exercises designed to build knowledge and confidence.

• Some experience with PHP.
• Some familiarity with object-oriented concepts.
• Experience working in the command-line interface.
• Experience working in a local *AMP development environment.
• Experience with a code editor.
• Existing knowledge of Drupal APIs is helpful, but not necessary.
• An up-and-running local *AMP stack with a fresh Drupal 9 install and Drush installed.
