What makes this Odoo course special?
1. We make it easy for those that are new to programming
While it certainly will be a little easier for someone who already knows some Python, this course does not require you to have any previous knowledge of Python.
Even if you have virtually no experience in computer programming we walk you through learning the Odoo framework in such a way that even a relative beginner can understand. In fact we show you several ways you can customize Odoo without even writing a single line of Python code!
If you are new to Python, we teach you how to add fields to any Odoo model, customize Odoo views, and creating you own menus and actions. Already know Python? That will make it all the easier. Just because we assume you don't know Python doesn't mean the course moves slowly. Within the 30 minutes of finishing your Odoo install you will be on your way to customizing Odoo!
2. The course helps you get Odoo 9 installed and developing RIGHT NOW!
Even if you have never used Ubuntu before, we show you the basics on how to get around Ubuntu and enter the required commands to setup an Odoo server right on your Windows machine. You learn how to setup your Ubuntu server with Odoo. Naturally if you have never setup Ubuntu, you may need to watch the video more than once, Google a few commands, or ask a few questions in our help forum. If you wish to run a production Odoo server you will need to supplement your skills. Still, if you don't know Ubuntu... this video will help you get started and you can follow along step-by-step with this course.
3. This Video is Designed to Help you Understand the Odoo framework
Instead of just showing you code examples we begin by going through the Odoo Framework and explaining how models, views and actions work together to make Odoo applications.

In this lecture we walk through the basics of download VMware Workstation player for windows. VMware Workstation Player is a powerful free application (for non-commercial use) that allows you to install and manage a nearly unlimited number of virtual servers right within your Windows workstation. You don't need to purchase any new hardware or sign up for a hosting service to begin using Odoo right away.
After downloading and installingg VMWare Workstation we then go to ubuntu.com to download the actual Ubuntu server, in this case the desktop edition of Ubuntu, that we will use to install Odoo and setup our development environment.
In this video you will see how to install Ubuntu 14.04 desktop from scratch, setup your development user and how to pull up terminal window.
In this video we finish up our Ubuntu install by making sure all the patches are applied. We reboot our server to make sure everything is operational. Next the video walks you through how to install Postgresql and configure your development user to have permission to create Odoo databases.
In this lecture you begin learning how the Odoo framework fits together by understanding the models that make up the foundation of all Odoo applications. To better understand the framework you learn how to use the debug mode to examine forms and see behind the scenes how Odoo fits together.
Using the debug mode we explore other Odoo models and begin discussing the basics of how models in Odoo work together to create powerful applications. By the end of the lecture you should be well on your way to understand how models make up the core foundation of Odoo applications.
Now that we understand the importance of Odoo models we turn our attention to understanding Odoo views. Views are the forms, tree views, kanbans, and other visual interfaces you interact with when using Odoo. By the end of the lecture you will be comfortable with the basics of adding fields and customizing forms using the debug mode in Odoo.
Now that you understand the basics of Odoo models and views you are ready to learn about actions. At the end of this lecture you will really begin to start understanding how the overall Odoo framework manages models, views and actions.
When it comes to meeting the requirements of a specific business or industry one of the most common requests is custom filters that allow users to access the records that are most important to their task. In this lecture learn how to create your own custom search views.
This lecture wraps up all we have learned and creates a menu to call our new custom action. At the end of this lecture and this section you should have a strong general understanding of the Odoo framework. Even if you don't choose to go on and develop your own Odoo applications you will have the knowledge to customize models, views, actions and menus. Essential skills for making simple Odoo customization's... without creating a single Python file. More importantly you will be well prepared to begin writing your first custom Odoo Application.
In this lecture we learn to add an additional field to an existing Odoo model. To make it easy to understand, we are adding the same field we added through debug mode in the section on Understanding the Odoo Framework. This is a big step in learning how to extend Odoo applications and meet essential business requirements.
One of the primary tasks of an Odoo developer is to modify views to better meet the needs of a given business. Here we get started at learning how to create custom Odoo applications that modify existing Odoo views with the new field we added in the previous lecture.
Here we continue to reinforce what we have learned about extending views with our custom field. This course is not designed like Odoo documentation or online documentation. It is designed to give you enough practice with developing Applications for Odoo that you can really begin Mastering Odoo Development. This lecture also begins to introduce you to how you can re-position fields within a view.
One of the most powerful features of Python is the ability to utilize powerful libraries that can be used to extend the power of your Python programs. This is an important lecture as Odoo has libraries that must be referenced from within your Odoo applications in order to leverage the Odoo framework. We then go on to see how to utilize a simple library that we import and then perform basic loops in Python.
When writing programs in Python or any other language for that matter, it's important that you understand how to keep your code modular and avoid single routines that are hundreds of lines long. This lecture teaches you how you can create a simple re-usable method in Python.
Up to this point we have used Nano, a built in editor that comes installed with Ubuntu 14.04. While it is important to know how to use the simple tools like Nano, there are far better solutions for editing code. In this lecture we learn how to install Eclipse, a robust editor that makes it far easier to edit our application.
Of all the lectures in this entire course, this lecture maybe the most important for expanding your skills as an Odoo developer and to put yourself on the path to Mastering Odoo Development. The best teacher you will ever find on Odoo Development is the Odoo source code itself. In this lecture you will learn how to navigate the Odoo source code and how to use the search features within Eclipse to find code that can be helpful in building your Odoo application. If you want a deep understanding of the Odoo framework this is where you really need to devote your time and efforts.
In this lecture we learn how to re-factor or improve our application by better utilizing the Odoo framework. We introduce students here to one of the biggest mistakes you can make in building Odoo applications and how to both avoid and correct applications that are on the wrong track.
If you have worked through the course to this point you should start feeling pretty comfortable at how Odoo's model, view and action (controller) framework fits together. Now we will use what we have learned to create our own new custom model to expand our application with more functionality.
As mentioned previously, Mastering Odoo Development is not designed as an Odoo reference but as a course that will get you comfortable creating powerful Odoo applications. This lecture we reinforce how to create menus and actions, this time tying them to our new Odoo model we created in the previous lecture.
In previous lectures we looked at the basics of related models and Many2One fields in Odoo. In this lecture you learn how to create related models in your custom application and use Many2One fields to link them together. By the end of this lecture you should really start to understand the incredible power within the Odoo framework. If you are familiar with developing database applications, this lecture will help you really appreciate the Odoo Framework and how easy it is to create powerful applicaitons.
Another very critical lecture on your path to Mastering Odoo Development. Computed fields allow you to create your own custom methods that then are automatically re-computed within the Odoo framework. This lecture demonstrates exactly how to create a computed field in Odoo and the method to do the calculation.
This lecture adds a little more complexity to our computed field. Structured as an exercise for the more ambitious Odoo developers in the course we begin to see just how powerful computed fields are and how critical they are to building more complex Odoo applications.
Odoo's default tree view does not provide much information. In fact it only gives you the name field from your model. In this lecture we create a custom tree view for our new model and learn how to total the column of our custom computed field that we have created in the previous lectures.
When you create new models in Odoo by default they are only accessible by the admin user. Odoo also provides you warning methods in the console to remind you that you have not configured any security for the model. In this lecture we again revisit the power of using the existing Odoo source code for helping us create the security for our new model. Then we see how we can quickly create the necessary entries for our new models.
Building what we have learned on related models we see how to tie our two new custom models into our product model. If you have been following the course to this point you should now feel quite comfortable with your ability to extend Odoo. Certainly if you are new to Python or programming in general you may need to review some of the previous lectures or use Google to answer questions that come up, but most of you will now be well on your way to having the core skills required to create powerful Odoo applications.
In this lecture we create another computed field that is more complex. This lecture is part instructional, part exercise. It is intentionally designed to ask you to put your own creative twist on the application when creating your own computed field.
Often times in Odoo you will want to take actions or update data in a field when data in another field changes. In this lecture we learn to use the OnChange decorator to change data within your Odoo application in real time. Even better your view automatically becomes dynamic by just specifying the decorator within your Odoo model.
Learn to create more complex reports that loop through the data in related models. Even better, these basic skills will be leveraged when developing more advanced Odoo applications and understanding more advanced video courses from Odoo Class.
One of the common tasks you will encounter as an Odoo developer is importing data from a variety of pre-existing systems. While the CSV import features of Odoo can be useful at times, there are a lot of limitations. This lecture shows you how to access data from an external file. If you are new to Python, you may want to review our Python Primer to better understand the collections of data from the file. We then see how to import that data into the Odoo product listing.
One of the great benefits of creating a custom Odoo import routine is that it can be run multiple times. However this only works if you first make sure that record is not already in your Odoo model. In this lecture you upgrade your Odoo import routine so it will check for duplicate records.
Often times when importing data into Odoo you will need to translate data from one system so that it will match the data as it is stored in Odoo. This means you may need to lookup records from another model in Odoo and then use those results when adding records into your Odoo model. In this lecture you will learn how to search for a specific product category and then use the results to better import your data into Odoo.
