Lullabot Module Monday in Videos!

For the last two years Lullabot has been writing up a post about a new contributed module every week, in a series called Module Monday. We have almost 100 modules introduced in simple, concise articles. Here at Drupalize.Me we are going to start creating video versions of these Lullabot Module Monday articles so you can have a visual walkthrough of using these modules, in addition to the written overview that the articles provide.

Release Day: Extend Views with Bulk Operations and Entity Attachments

This week we keep rolling out handy modules that everyone should know about, with a look at two very popular modules for extending the Views module. The first, Entity Views Attachment (EVA), lets you attach any of your views to various entities on your site, like nodes or users. This is handy when you want to display a view as part of another entity on your site, instead of displaying it on its own URL.

Release Day: A Threesome of Very Handy Modules

This week's release we have three super handy modules to check out when building your site. The Module Filter module is designed to make your site administration life easier but helping you navigate the module administration page. Environment Indicator helps you sort out which site you are currently looking at and working on. This can get confusing if you are following best practices, and have several versions of the site for different stages of work (like development, staging, and live).

New Series: Deploying Your Code with Beanstalk

This week I am continuing the trend of mini-series with some lessons on deploying your code, in the FREE Deploying Your Code Without a Terminal series. The reason behind this quick set of videos is that not everyone is command line savvy, and not everyone has to be. What is important though, is getting your code into version control, and there are plenty of tools that let you do that using a graphical interface.

Release Day: Coding for Views and a Free Menu Lesson

This week we are finally finishing up our Coding for Views series with the last two lessons, which lagged a bit for us. We're happy to round things out by providing another example of writing a Views handler which creates a Views area handler, and with a look at theming Views. In addition to wrapping up that series, we also have a free video that looks at working with secondary menus. While this lesson is using Drupal 6, the concepts and processes used are exactly the same in Drupal 7, and is still applicable there.

Release Day: Free Community Videos to Kickstart Your Year

Happy New Year! We're kicking off 2013 with some FREE videos to get people up and running with our Drupal community tools. There are a lot of aspects of the Drupal community that many people take for granted. Even something as "simple" as figuring our what community websites are out there, and how to use them, is often overlooked when talking to people new to Drupal. So, if you want to really dive into this Drupal thing in 2013, here is a gentle orientation to help get you started.

Release Day: Drush Make and Policy Files

This week, we are wrapping up 2012, and our Coding for Drush series. The last videos in this Drush series will take a look at some really neat things you can do with your new-found Drush skills. The first thing we want to look at is creating policy files for your Drush command. This allows you to essentially provide access control for your commands. You can check who is trying to run the command and stop it from proceeding. After we get that in place, we wrap up with two videos about Drush make.

Release Day: Advanced Drush Hook Wrangling

As we work our way through December, we are also working our way through the Coding for Drush series. This week we have three new videos, which cover a bunch of extras to add to our drush command. We'll be looking at how to add additional help information, and prompt the user for more information. Then we'll take a dive into some more advanced things with specifying version numbers, and even the Drupal bootstrap level required.

Coding for Drush Series

This week we're releasing a new series, Coding for Drush. If you've ever used Drush, and wondered how you can create your own custom Drush commands, then this series is right up your alley. When I sat down to start planning the content for our recent Coding for Views series I found myself in a position where I needed to quickly generate a bunch of random data for a custom module’s database table, so that when querying the table with views there would be something there.

Release Day: Free Videos for Command Line and Ooyala

Today's release day is a mixture of free videos! We have two new videos to add to our Command Line Basics Series, covering Bash aliases and working with MySQL. In addition to those lessons, we are also releasing a short four-video series about Using the Ooyala module with Drupal. Ooyala is a paid video delivery service, which manages your videos and handles video delivery to your site.

Release Day: Writing Views Handlers and Panels Variants

This week we're happy to continue two series for you. Coding for Views series continues to dive into fields and handlers, while the FREE Building Websites Using Panels series looks at using variants.

Coding for Views

New Series: Building Websites with the Panels Module and More Coding for Views

This week we are launching a great new series by Jen Lampton, "Building Websites Using the Panels Module," in addition to continuing our Coding for Views series. The Panels module which has been a long requested video series from our members and we are proud to kick that off with this introductory set of videos.

Jen covers everything from the Panels interface to using variants for multi-scenario layouts. She'll cover creating multi-column pages and how the Page Manager module, part of CTools, with Panels gives us a much more flexible layout engine than Drupal alone. This will lay a great foundation for a future, advanced series on how to use code with Panels to really get crazy.
