Default Welcome from the author

As the introduction to Leveraging Drupal - Getting your site done right says, you need to read the book, and also work your way through it.

I sincerely hope that this forum will become an interactive hub where we can discuss the difficult process of web application building and hone the approach put forward (reading) and help each other out on any stumbling blocks that might arise as you slug your way through (work).

When you work through a chapter, you might need two separate Drupal instances to work with as you go along: one to run the downloaded code (Drupal instance) and make sure you understand what's going on, then a second one (ongoing from chapter to chapter) where you incorporate the changes bit by bit as you work on through the book.

I'm here to help and learn as you do that.

Welcome!

Default It being 8 o'clock in the morning and everything...

You have made my day!

It's worth pointing out that all the work for the book was done in Ubuntu, using the following tools:
  • Open Office (completely compatible with the stylesheets and the needs of the publisher)
  • Gimp
  • Java based diagraming tool: Jude Community Edition for the diagrams (free download of the Community edition at http://jude.change-vision.com/jude-web/index.html)

Mr. Kane,

When I found your book, Leveraging Drupal, Getting your site done right, I was both elated and relieved. While I am striving to master Drupal and Web Development, I know that any process in a business endeavor needs to be reproducible, well documented and provide a road map should I need to call in expert help. Your advice on development as a software project starting with a Map for Business Vision and using an SVN repository, has met my needs exactly.

The wisdom and resources crafted into every page is helping me to turn a hodgepodge of good ideas into an actual process. Now I know that my project is "do-able" and that this time is the last time I will have to start over from scratch.

Your understanding of the people process, technical guidance and follow-up in the form of on-line help, puts the power of successful web development into the hands many… especially beginners like me. In this respect you stand apart from the rest.

Thank you,

Kelly Downs

Kelly,

I sincerely wish you all the best in your work in this field.

Your response really makes all the effort that went into writing the book worthwhile.

It is very gratifying to see the book meeting the kinds of needs it was designed to cater to.
