Building Custom Fieldtypes in EE

9:30AM - 12:30PM

ExpressionEngine is revered for its flexibility and extensibility. Fieldtypes are the perfect example of both these properties. They allow you to structure your data, customize both input and output, all while maintaining the channel paradigm. But wait, there’s more! Since EE 2.7, it’s possible to create fieldtypes that can be used *outside* of channels. Use them as Grid cells or even in your own modules. Learn how to bring your custom fieldtypes to the next level.
