Module Development introduces the coding concepts behind Drupal 8 and prepares students to tackle feature development beyond what is available through core and contributed modules. This platform is built in PHP and utilizes Symfony components to extend its accessibility to non- Drupal programmers. If you know how to configure a Drupal 8 site, but you've found limitations with what you can do with core and contributed modules; you are part of a new Drupal 8 implementation team, or you will be taking over on-going maintenance of a site built by a third party development group - this course will prepare you to manage any customizations required.

Target Audience:
Drupal developers new to module development (Learners) PHP or other programmers new to Drupal (Newcomers)

Prerequisites:
In order to get the most out of this course you should have prior experience in site building with Drupal. A combination of Acquia's Introduction to Drupal 8 (or What’s New in Drupal 8) and Building Websites with Drupal 8 would be ideal preparation for those with no prior Drupal experience. You do have experience with programming. While you don't need to be an expert in PHP, you understand the basic constructs of programming enough to work with a new language.
