NWDUG on Meetup : Will you attend?

This month we have Matt Smith who will be talking about the the Drupal 8 Plugin API.

If there is one API in Drupal 8 that you should learn, it’s the Plugin API. This simple yet flexible system is used throughout core and is bound to be used extensively in contributed modules as well. In this talk Matt Smith will demonstrate how plugins are used in modules to provide blocks, text filters and field formatters. We will also look at creating our own plugin manager to allow other modules to extend functionality.

This month we have Andrew Macpherson who will be talking about the Field UI API (and some modules which use it).

———————–
Drupal’s field formatters offer site builders lots of ways to display their content, but sometimes a few more options are needed.
This session will start with a look at the Field Formatter Settings API module for Drupal 7, which gives developers an easy way to add new settings to field formatters.
Next, we’ll take a quick tour through a range of helpful little modules which site builders can use to tweak their content output. Custom field labels, extra text-trimming options, HTML5 data attributes, limiting multiple values… there’s a module for all of these!
To round things off we’ll look forward to Drupal 8, which takes things a little further. With the new Field UI API and Form Display Modes, extra settings can be applied to field widgets too!
———————–
After the talk we will break off into groups so that people can talk through their Drupal problems with other members of the group. There is nothing formal planned for this, we will just ask if anyone has any problems and if anyone can help them solve it. We are reintroducing this as it is something we haven’t done for a while but some members have mentioned that they miss it.
We usually wrap things up before 9:00 PM and move to a pub. Come along and join in the Drupal fun!

If you are interested in coming along then please sign up to our meetup group.
