Odoo Development Essentials

Fast-track your Odoo developer skills

Why this book

Odoo is a unique and powerful open-source platform for business applications. On top of it a suite of closely integrated applications was built, covering all business areas from CRM and Sales to Accounting and Stocks.

Odoo has a dynamic and growing community around it, constantly adding features, connectors and additional business apps. However, the initial learning curve for Odoo development can be quite steep.

Odoo Development Essentials aims at stopping that gap, providing a step by step guide to Odoo development to quickly become productive in the Odoo application platform.

The first three chapters aim to get the reader comfortable with Odoo, the basic techniques to setup a development environment, and get familiar with the module development approach and workflow.

The next five chapters, from Chapter 4 to Chapter 8, explain in detail the several development areas used in modules: data files, models, views, business logic and QWeb.

The two final chapters guide you to integratate Odoo applications with external applications and to deploy your Odoo instance for production use.
