As a developer you are tasked with altering or extending the functionality of Joomla! or one of its extensions. You will be proficient in a range of programming languages, including PHP, but may be less familiar with such things as JavaScript or CSS. If you are new to Joomla! you will need information about the Joomla! Framework API and how to use it and will probably make extensive use of best practice example code.

A complete contents list of all pages of interest to developers can be found in the development category.

Components

<translate> 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 should start with the Absolute Basics of How a Component Functions. If needed, you can visualise the control flow of a component with these diagrams.</translate>

<translate> Next, you will want to read our  Joomla 2.5 Joomla 3.x MVC tutorial    Developing a Model-View-Controller Component. Remember to familiarise yourself with Joomla! Secure coding guidelines and Development Best Practices.</translate>

<translate> Once you have read the tutorial and/or tried the example component, you can focus more on the specifics of your component with additional articles. These are listed on the Component Development Portal or any of the supporting Portals for Development(Plugins, Modules or Templates).</translate>
