Introduction to Moodle 3.9 (LTS) Plugin Development
Benjamin C Ellis
The author formally became a professional web developer over 22 years ago and now specialises in PHP and Moodle plugin and integration development. He has worked on many Moodle and Totara projects for Moodle partner organisations, educational authorities and organisations as well as organisations for staff and client training through his own company.
An introduction to plugin development for Moodle, the world’s leading learning environment, for PHP developers, see http://moodle.org/. Examples of the type of book covers readers would expect can be found by looking at books in the ‘Computing & Internet›Programming›Languages’ section on Amazon, in particular ‘wordpress development’ books which are similar. I am hoping to have a play on the IDE screenshot attached but I am very open to other ideas. Use of the orange colors similar to Moodle's colour scheme may help with recognition. Expected to be printed at 7.5" x 9.25" (19.05 x 23.5 cm).
English speaking PHP Developers/Programmers - particularly those with a few years experience.
Book cover type
See book description. I am looking for something that will fit in with the genre.
What to avoid
The use of the Moodle logo.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Ben Ellis collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
