Extend your Drupal 7 sites with custom modules, which allow you to create everything from admin interfaces to forms. Author Jon Peck describes how modules extend your base Drupal installation, then walks through how to write your own module with a practical example featuring geo-positioned alternative energy centers. The course also describes how to control access to site features, create new content types, build forms, understand data persistence, embrace coding standards, and much more.
From zero to a full featured custom module, this course covered a lot of ground. Some refer to Drupal as having a learning cliff instead of a learning curve, which based on my experience is an apt label. There is a method to the madness to be sure and this course was structured to provide the background and context necessary to making sense of what is needed to build custom functionality into a site that can't be found off the shelf. No one tool is right for every job to be sure. But knowing which toolbox to open and why is important.
I've come to appreciate Drupal both as a system for building web applications and for the community that exists around it. I hope you get involved as well. Thanks for watching.
