New Joomla Class: Introduction to Object Oriented PHP

Object Oriented PHP

We're delighted to launch an important new class called, "Introduction to Object Oriented PHP".

This class is part of a series of new developer-focused classes at Joomlashack University. Last week, you saw the launch of new Joomla development classes.

Object oriented programming (OOP) is the most popular model used by PHP developers.

Joomla has long been a leader in terms of OOP. Back in 2008, the Joomla team launched version 1.5. This was a completely rewrite, in part to introduce OOP principles.

In this class, you'll learn the fundamentals of OOP and, in particular, how they apply to Joomla and PHP.

How to Create Tabs Using Joomla and Bootstrap

How to Create Tabs Using Joomla Bootstrap
If you are a Joomla developer, and you are creating your own extension or template, it will often happen that you need a nice way to organize your output so that it looks neat on the page.

A good way to do this is using a tab set, that is, a clickable set of information panes.

This article shows how to do this using Joomla Bootstrap. The Bootstrap framework is a jQuery plugin which is distributed as part of the Joomla core.

The image below has an example of tabs in action:

6 Possible New Features in Joomla 3.7

6 Possible New Features in Joomla 3.7

Joomla developers are working hard on Joomla 3.7, and they are proposing a lot of exciting changes.

In this post, I'm going to give you a preview of 6 new features that may be added to Joomla 3.7.

We're not even at the Alpha phase of development for 3.7 yet, so nothing is set in stone. I'm sure the developers would love more feedback and testing on these great ideas. I've added a Github link next to each proposed improvement, so you know how to get involved.

New at Joomlashack University: Become a Joomla Developer

New at Joomlashack University: Become a Joomla Developer

Before today, it was really difficult to find Joomla development training. There are few resources available if you want to learn how to build Joomla extensions.

Today, I'm delighted to say that has changed.

At Joomlashack University, we've released the first of several Joomla development classes.

We've worked with Cory Webb, a Joomla developer since 2005, to produce a series of classes on building Joomla extensions.

This first new class is called "How to Develop Joomla Modules".
