In this chapter, we have looked at building an event management site for the Aurora Book Club, making use of the Date field, the Calendar plug-in for Views, and the Flag module for handling attendance. The book club now has a handy calendar that is displayed on the site and available in iCal format. They also have an easy-to-find list of all the attendees for each event. The site is simple and easy to use, yet fits all of the club’s needs quite nicely. In this summary we'll take a tour of the Aurora Book Club site to see what we've built, and discuss our implementation points. Then we'll wrap up with a quick review of of modules we talked about in this series.
