Join Jon Peck for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of Drupal 7: Custom Module Development.
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. …

Q: gmap3_tools is not working the way I expected it to. What version of gmap3_tools should I be using?
A: Use the free exercise file containing the version of gmap3_tools used for recording; the published version of the module on drupal.org has changed since recording and is not backwards compatible.
Q: I attempted to run the Drupal site root from the project files, but the site isn't loading. Why not?
A: The Drupal configuration file in sites/default/settings.php contains database configuration specific to the environment used to record the movie. This may be different than your environment. Edit the file and search for "windfarms" - you may need to change the database host, username, password, db name and port to match your specific environment.
