CiviVolunteer - Behind The Scenes / Developer Overview


In this companion session to the overview of the new core CiviVolunteer module, we will go behing the scenes to talk about our experiences creating a core module. We'll start with a quick refesher on what CiviVolunteer does, and then compare the old CiviCRM way of doing customizations with the new way of doing customizations using Civix, JS Backbone with Marionnette and the API.You'll get a real-life understanding of what goes into designing and implementing a core module - from the pre-planning work, to the actual implementation. We'll cover where the development experience went well, what didn't go so well, and what we learned in the process. This session will be useful to anyone who has ever thought they might be interested in building on the core of CiviCRM.
