Introduction for Sugar Developers

The getting started learning pathway is designed to provide developers a clear understanding of how the SugarCRM Customer Relationship Management platform is customized through code extensions, also referred to as ‘development’. The Sugar platform is designed to support a wide range of extensions that can be applied to the underlying platform, the Sugar user interfaces and in support of integration with external applications.

Developers who are new to the Sugar platform also need to understand which types of customizations can accomplished through configuration alone, either by users or through the Sugar Administration interface. This is why the presentation begins by comparing development to other modes by which Sugar can be customized. Quite commonly, customizations require a mix of configuration and development.

The central focus of this course are the two frameworks by which most extensions are applied to Sugar: the Extension Framework and the Sidecar Framework. Several extension examples referenced in the Course Presentation are presented in detail on this page.
