Apress has given me the opportunity to review this Drupal 7 book. I expect the review to appear later this month on my blog.
The Definitive Guide to Drupal 7 is the most comprehensive book for getting sites done using the powerful and extensible Drupal content management system. Written by a panel of expert authors, the book covers every aspect of Drupal, from planning a successful project all the way up to making a living from designing Drupal sites and to contributing to the Drupal community yourself. With this book you will:
Follow practical approaches to solving many online communication needs with Drupal with real examples.
Learn how to keep learning about Drupal: administration, development, theming, design, and architecture.
Go beyond the code to engage with the Drupal community as a contributing member and to do Drupal sustainably as a business.
What you’ll learn
Launch a community-ready site in fifteen minutes.
Talk to stakeholders and architect a site’s structure and functionality around the goals it must achieve to successfully launch major enterprise sites.
Find, evaluate, and configure modules to extend Drupal’s functionality.
Theme inspired designs into functional, future-proof templates.
