Practical Info

Date: Monday Sep 30 - Tuesday Oct 1
Time: 9 am - 5 pm
Location: Aula Magna • Belgium
Lunch and Drinks are included for each day of the training.


Prerequisites

This training assumes that attendees have an intermediate knowledge of both Odoo and Javascript. Attendees should have some experience developing add-ons in Odoo, and be ready to build on that.


Why should you attend?

The Odoo Framework is quite expressive, many add-ons can express a lot of business logic just by defining models (in Python) and template/views (in XML). This is fine for most cases, but there is a limit to what you can do. To overcome this limit, you need to extend the Odoo web client in Javascript. Version 13 will feature a new large refactoring of the web client, and this training is a good opportunity to learn where Odoo is going. 


What will you learn?

This training aims to help you customize the user interface to your needs. In two days, we will create a basic project management add-on, with a dashboard, customized form widgets, and a new map view. This will be an opportunity to understand how the web client is designed and can be extended. Note that this training will be done in Odoo version 13.
