Lesson #36 - How Image_gallery and Views work together.

On Sunday, at the regular time, EclipseGc will be showing us how the image_gallery module integrates with Views. Come see how to make your pictures sing and dance. If time permits, and we're pretty sure it will, Eclipse will expound on how Views args really work. We will be recording both of these segments as separate screencasts so they can be made available as reference material on the site.

Chx has stepped up to the plate and will do a lesson on debugging your Drupal installation. What is debugging? It is how you figure out what is wrong with your code that then allows you to actually fix the little bugger.

Chx is going to be going through and working on bugs in core. He will show you how he tracks them down and then he'll squash 'em. So bring your buggy code to class and we'll all go on a bug hunt. This is great stuff for not only getting your own code to run smoothly but it is a great way to get in an help out core Drupal. Even if you don't know how to fix a bug once you find it, being able to find them and give detailed information on where they are and what they are doing is a HUGE help in getting Drupal 6 out the door.

Lesson #28 - Theming Like a Pro!

Start: 
2007-09-09 18:00 Etc/GMT

Matt Westgate, co-author of Pro Drupal Development, is going to give us a lesson on Theming! The lesson will start with an existing HTML/CSS theme and carry us through basic "Drupalizing" to get us about 80% of the way there. Then we'll look at how to leverage template.php and Drupal's PHPTemplate system to take us the rest of the way to a fully customized theme. Chapter 8 of Pro Drupal Development on The Theme System is available online for free so everyone can see how concepts from the book are applied to a real world example. Should be an awesome lesson from a great teacher so make sure you mark the date.
