  • Model View Controller (MVC) development - Developers Line

    Model–view–controller (MVC) is a software architecture, currently considered an architectural pattern used in software engineering.

    This session will compare the ACL system in Joomla! 1.5 with the current system available in Joomla! 1.6 and 1.7 and will show you how to set up and adminsiter access groups within the ACL system.
