In this chapter we learn how to create a new database table. This example walks through creating a module that defines the the properties of our new table and also programatically creating that table. We learn about hook_schema() and hook_update_N() in our module's install file.
Trainers note: This video starts out with a module that implements hook_node_view() and stores data about views in the $_SESSION variable. It also states that we built this earlier in the series. However, that's not true. We did talk about hook_node_view() in https://drupalize.me/videos/event-driven-hook-system, but we never actually wrote the $_SESSION handling part. So, if you're following along and want the same sample code we start with make sure you download the code attached to this node.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
