Moodle Developer course as announced by Martin Dougiamas is now coming under shape and will be ready in upcoming weeks. In the recently concluded Developers meeting, Martin presented the outline structure of the developers course which is still a work in progress as of now and is expected to be finished in upcoming weeks.
You can check out the outline structure of the developers course here – https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Tutorial The course is meant for the first time Moodle developers and will help you learn how to write Moodle plugins from starting to finish, while showing you how to navigate the most important developer documentation along the way.
The course provides very generic overview for beginners and assumes that you are fairly conversant with PHP language and can install a database and web server on your local computer.
If you are also a developer, then you can contribute to the course by adding comments and sharing your knowledge with other community members.
