Focusing on advancing Drupal 7

With our 'Building With Drupal' track (http://groups.drupal.org/node/52023) filling up with advanced/niche topics, we've decided to launch an additional series geared towards newcomers to the community. In addition to producing a series of screencasts, we will be directing attention/resources to Drupal 7 development, theming, and documentation.

The wiki contains a basic outline of topics that will be refined based on feedback and needs of the community. If you have a suggestion, would like to present, or mentor, don't hesitate to revise the wiki or comment in this thread.

another suggestion

What about giving a brief rundown of some of the differences between D6 & D7? Some of the newcomers to Drupal will be familiar w/some of the things in D6 but I think it's key that we provide a resource on getting them up to speed on some of the differences that D7 will introduce.

I can also help out w/this presentation.

First session tomorrow

Doug Vann will be kicking off this series tomorrow (http://groups.drupal.org/node/60003). Probably would be a good time to rundown the differences between D6 & 7 and also direct people to ways they can help get D7 released (http://drupal.org/drupal-7.0-alpha3).

Any other thoughts, ideas, suggestions?
