RE: Functional vs. Technical

- 04/20/2015 23:36:51

Well I think it depends on the people.


In my experience,

I learned the technical stuff first like developing a simple module and report,

Later I started to learned functional stuff.


The advantage for that is when I learned about functional I can look on the code too, and I understand the code too.

So I can understand better the behavior, why it happen like this or that.


And in the process on learning functional, because I look on the code too, I learned the structure on Odoo official module.

It helps me a lot when I want inherit the object from Odoo official module, because I know where is the code is in the module.


Thank You.

Hi Oscar,


I think first you should try it yourself for a couple weeks, then functional, then technical. You can’t follow the technical training unless you know the functionalities of Odoo, right?
