Thanks for watching Drupal 7 New Features. I've tried to give you a sense of what's happened over the past two-and-a-half years to make this version possible. Well, let's take a look at some next steps. Of course, my Drupal 6 Essential Training course is still available for those of you who are still working on that version. Two other Drupal courses were produced for Drupal 6, but most of the information in them will still be good for Drupal 7. My Drupal 6 Online Presentation of Data course is still valid, particularly the sections about the Views module. And Chris Charlton's course Drupal: Creating and Editing Custom Themes is still a great way to thoroughly understand Drupal's graphical interface.
But the web development world doesn't stop with Drupal, of course, and the lynda.com website has dozens of series on the subject. On the lynda.com site, just go to Subject and scroll all the way down to Web Development near the bottom. In particular, I recommend you consider watching courses on CSS and PHP as those are Drupal's two main languages. To go even further, try a MySQL course, such as Bill Weinman's MySQL Essential Training, or you can get two courses in one with Kevin Skoglund's PHP with MySQL Essential Training.
I'm excited for everything Drupal's developers have done to make Drupal 7 the best version yet. I look forward to seeing what you do with it to bring great Drupal sites to the web.
