About this book

Odoo is fast becoming the reference open-source platform for business applications, thanks to the fact that it provides the infrastructure needed for developers to quickly deliver software solutions for any business process. Odoo's layered module approach makes it particularly effective for combining and extending features. This updated fifth edition is a tutorial-style introduction to essential Odoo development topics.

The book starts by covering the development essentials for building business applications. You’ll learn how to install and configure Odoo, gradually transitioning from having no specific knowledge of Odoo to being ready for application development. The book will also show you how to develop your first Odoo application, while taking you through topics such as models and views. Later chapters will get you up to speed with using server APIs to add business logic, helping you lay a solid foundation for advanced topics. As you progress, you’ll get equipped to build and customize your applications and explore the new features in Odoo v13 and v14, such as in-memory ORM and computed writable fields. Finally, you’ll gain insights into building business logic and using the Odoo API to integrate with various applications.

By the end of this book, you’ll be able to build business apps from scratch using the latest version of Odoo.
