I am signed up for the developer training in Denver. What do I need to bring to the training? Is there anything I should study before the training?

I'm going to be starting here at the developer wiki - http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/Develop

and continuing here - http://wiki.civicrm.org/confluence/display/CRMDOC/GitHub+for+CiviCRM

and I might just buy the book here, though it may be out of date- http://www.amazon.com/Using-CiviCRM-Joseph-Murray/dp/1849512264


You need a wifi enabled laptop. Beyond that, I would see what your instructors recommend. @Joe McLaughlin's suggestions for prepping the machine and doing a bit of github stuff for a core commit are good ideas.

While I appreciate the advertising for our book (thanks, Joe!), it was focussed solely on non-developers, so it's not that relevant to the developers course. FWIW, Brian and I are working on a new revision based on 4.6.

  • Cool @Joe Murray, I think I reviewed the first chapters :-) Nice to hear you are working on it! Apr 16, 2015 at 8:20
  • Thanks Joe, I bought the book anyway, looking forward to the updated version Apr 20, 2015 at 4:52
