Hi! I am on Tom Geller and this is Drupal 7 Reporting and Visualizing Data. Drupal is one of the most popular ways to publish information on the web, but what's not is well known is that it's a great way to collect, manage and display data from any source. You could collect news items about a topic that interests you, for example,. Best of all, you can mine data from any Drupal site you already have, fully unleashing its power. We will take advantage of features that are new to Drupal 7, such as Entities, and dive deeply into the Drupal add-on called Views.
When we're done, you'll hear how to turn an ordinary Drupal web site into a data driven one, that presents information clearly, dynamically and in engaging ways. Let's get started with Drupal 7 Reporting and Visualizing data.
