DC / DC

Last week, March 3-7, I had the extreme pleasure of attending the annual North American Drupal conference, Drupalcon, in Washington DC. The sessions varied from a beginners look at Drupal to code improvements that need to be made to core. They also ranged from Dries' "I love Drupal, its the greatest thing since sliced butter" keynote address to Walkah's session titled "Why I hate Drupal".

Drupal Views Fusion - WOW

Cycles 14-16 will remember the challenge of presenting the currently assigned courses and cbo’s for the DePaul application. No other page in the entire system went through more rewrites.

Context:
The application is designed to facilitate the matching process between courses (which have students), and cbo’s (which need volunteers). The assignments table creates a many-to-many relationship between courses and cbo’s, where a single course has several cbo’s that will work with it, and a single cbo can work with many courses over time. The implementation was done using node referenced cck fields. You can see the datamodel here:
