This week I received my review copy of Front End Drupal: Designing, Theming, Scripting (Developer's Library), by Emma Jane Hogbin and Konstantin Käfer. Because I'm a realist, I won't wait to post my review of this book – it took me weeks to set aside the time to write and post an article about a talk I gave in February, so reading Front End Drupal and putting together a coherent review could take me longer than it took the authors to write the book. Instead, I'll stick with the spirit of my blog and link to a review written by Addison Berry, one of the authors of Using Drupal .

As a side note: Emma Jane Hogbin is one of the people I met not long after I wrote about her on this blog (insert sounds of horns tooting here). That was more than a year ago and led to a working relationship (Emma's written several articles for us, including a DrupalCon report coming out in our June 2009 issue) as well as a friendship. Ok, I tooted Addison, Emma, and Konstantin's horns, as well as my own horn, I suppose. How many more can I squeeze into one blog post? Here's another one: Check out Lisa Hoover's follow up to my blog post earlier this week, Women in Tech: Are We Our Own Worst Enemy?


  • review of Front End Drupal

    I just finished reading Front End Drupal. Basically it covers how to create new themes for Drupal 6 as well as convert themes from older versions of Drupal, WordPress and Joomal! One good thing about the book is it's JavaScript coverage (last 3 chapters).

  • reviews, time and linking love

    I love it! There's nothing so good as an honest review. Thanks for the shout-out Rikki! happy
