I already have some knowledge about Python and Javascript. With this I want to start learning how OpenERP works and relates to each part. How should I start this voyage in learning how OpenERP at the code level.

I'm a new user here and don't want to use this forum for self-promotion, however I started a little OpenERP documentation project. It is still a work-in-progress, but it might be useful to you. Here is a sample model page:


There is more work to be done and your feedback will be appreciated.

You should promote valuable work you're offering for free. Good for you!

I would start looking at some simple Community apps (modules) and see how they work.

I have created a tool for people learning OpenERP and I'm going to promote it here whether the netiquette cops like it or not. What's good for me is good for OpenERP.

With my Google Spreadsheets to OpenERP Data Pump you keep your experimental data in various Google spreadsheets. Any time you want to trash the whole stinkin' mess you made in OpenERP and go back to a backup, or completely reinstall, you can select exactly the data set you want to restore and pump it all back into the XMLRPC port, while you go make a coffee.

Excellent contribution Martin.
