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?
Running multiple sites on a single codebase is only one of Drupal's tricks, and it is a cool one! Packt's new mini book digs into the multi-site topics and provides a wealth of info for all levels of site builders.
The procrastinating is finally over and the HackMonkey blog is live!
OK, so the site isn't all that whoppie right now, but that will change!
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.
