Only local images are allowed.Drupal is a powerful web application platform, we all know that. But what happens when we want to use it from the desktop in a software application? Join the world of Drupal web services in this lesson, covering how to break down the bridge between the desktop and Drupal through Services and Mono/.NET.

Although we will be using Mono and C# to communicate with Drupal, the knowledge obtained in this lesson could be easily ported over to other platforms and languages including Python, C++, etc.


Aww, I won't make it!

Since we didn't get the VNC server working, I'll be putting together a screencast demonstration within the next few days.

Here it is

I've just put the video online. It covers putting together a software application that both receives and posts information to a Drupal website.

That's very useful! Thanks!
