I am new to SilverStripe.
I would like to know how should I start develop a module for SilverStripe; some good tutorials to get me started. I visited but when I browse further "How to Add a link to your module in the main SilverStripe Admin Menu" ( then I get error page.

Thanks in advanced. :)

Developing a module isn't really all that different from adding code/classes in your mysite/code folder. If it works in mysite/code, it works in your module! The key to making the module code work is to have a _config.php in the module folder. After that just develop as normal.

I would recommend taking a look at some of the other modules already developed such as the blog to get an idea of where to start.
