Customizing and Extending CiviCRM in Joomla!

Speaker(s): 
Description: 

In this session we will walk through best practices when customizing and tailoring CiviCRM to your needs, including: implementing events/hooks in Joomla plugins, PHP override files, template overrides, javascript/jquery-based modifications, css overrides, and an overview of the API. While the session will cover many general customization and development topics that are common to all three CMS environments, particular attention will be given to implementation and nuances in Joomla! Time allowing, we will also review some of the 3rd party extensions available for Joomla which provide useful tools and access to CiviCRM data. The session will be hands-on, and sample code will be provided to help you get started customizing your system. We'll also leave plenty of opportunity for attendee-directed discussion.
