Sensible API Calls Initiative

Submitted by cafuego on 1 April, 2012 - 12:01

More than once I've had people ask for help because the concept and naming of hooks in Drupal both frightens and confuses them. FRIGHTENS and CONFUSES. Sadly, this is a very common occurrence.

In order to address this problem, the SAC (Sensible API Calls) Initiative has been formed. Our first task has been to clarify and simplify alter hooks throughout Drupal. We've opened issue #1510984 on drupal.og and posted an initial patch, which addresses how the alter API is called.

Drupal Downunder Video

Update: Internode have graciously offered to host all videos on their mirror server, please check http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/drupaldownunder/

It's been a while since Drupal Downunder and unfortunately some hardware problems (which will be resolved in the next two weeks or so) have prevented us from posting the conference videos in an easy to download format.

As a work-around, we've decided to make all the videos available for download via bittorrent. The torrent files for the 7.7GB Ogg Theora format and 18GB H264 (MP4) format downloads are attached below. To help seed (please do!) the torrents, please check the instructions on the Drupal Downunder 2012 site

... and last but not least, a huge thankyou to Brian Gilbert for pushing the Ogg files to the high bandwidth server, so I don't have to seed them via my poor ADSL connection only :-)

To market, to market...

My apologies for arriving a little late to the party. 
 
Thanks to the latest DrupalEasy podcast I've just read these 2 articles on Drupal Marketing, and most of the comments. 
I was also lucky enough to be present in London to hear Dries' call to the faithful to step up our marketing efforts and really help Drupal succeed.
 
There's been some attention paid to business focussed events, and the creation and collation of "marketing materials". But how much attention is being paid to the market itself?
