There are many articles, tutorials, references and FAQs which focus on component development. If this is your first time developing a component for Joomla, you can visualise the control flow of a component with these diagrams.
Next, you will want to work through our MVC tutorial, Developing a Model-View-Controller Component . Once you have read the tutorial and tried the example component, you can focus more on the specifics of your component with additional articles, which are listed on the Component Development Portal.
