When I first setup this website, it was mainly for my own benefit – a place to note down annoyances, bug fixes, work-arounds for various issues in the tech world. I’d use it to refer back to (or refer other people to) when I’d been asked to help/offer advise on a particular topic that I’d covered previously.
All that seems to have died off now, all the bugs got fixed, and I’m no longer annoyed (LOL -now there’s a dream). So, in order to make it look like this website is still being updated (since I’ve only posted once this year so far!), I’m going to start a series on Magento module development, offering tutorials, how-to’s, tips and tricks, for developing your own Magento modules with. I’ll cover areas such as;
- The basics
- Blocks, Models and Helpers in-depth
- Using events and observers
- The administration area
- Shipping methods
- Payment gateways
..and much more. Watch this space for what will probably be the most I’ve ever written in a really long time!
I might offer more than Magento tutorials in the future. If you have a particular topic/subject area you’d like me to cover, get in touch and I’ll see what I can do!
