I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

Those methods are called by Odoo, probably you will never end up calling those by yourself. Those methods are called by some widgets like many2one to get the display name of the record.

ok thanks for your answer. but can you give me more precise answer about when these method called exactly by odoo!
