Demystifying Drupal

Book Review: Drupal 7 Development by Example - Beginner's Guide

August 30, 2012 - 2:29pm

Typically I find that learning by doing works best for me, and there are some subjects (Drupal) that lend themselves to this approach as well. Drupal 7 Development by Example sounded like just the ticket. Many of the big keywords are hit on while flipping through the preface. Initially this sounds great, but perhaps there are too many? This book appears to have all the right intentions, but maybe it bites off a bit too much?

Two new Drupal Mini Books just in for Review

June 15, 2012 - 1:30pm

Just received Packt's other 2 mini books, Drupal 7 Multi Sites Configuration and Drupal 7 Multilingual. The HackMonkey is fairly comfortable using Drupal's multi site features, but multilingual is new territory - should be interesting! Subscribe to the RSS or follow on Twitter to know when the reviews are published! In the meantime, if these books already seem like they are right for you, Packt is offering them for 30% off individually, or 40% off of all 3 mini books. This offer is good for the month of June.

Book Review: Design and Prototyping for Drupal

The Monkey was very happy to see that Dani Nordin didn't waste anytime jumping straight into the content with her designer oriented book. Admittedly at 170 pages, there isn't room for fluff! However she does manage to pack in some good stuff that should appeal to those that are more oriented towards the front end and visual side of Drupal. Drupal is complex enough that there are several processes a good project should go through before code or pixels are laid down.
