This month we have Lorna Mitchell who will be talking about the OOP for Drupal Developers.
———————–
A practical, no-rhetoric session on what objects are and why they might be useful to developers. We’ll start with a little theory and then move on quickly to some practical examples of what you’ll see in an OOP PHP project. From classes, objects and inheritance, we’ll move on to file structure and autoloading code in PHP.

This session will also cover more advanced concepts such as traits and interfaces, and discuss how they allow us to build more powerful, flexible applications with less code to maintain. Developers who attend this session will be able to tackle their next OOP project with confidence.
———————–

After the talk we normally 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 usually wrap things up before 9:00 PM and move to a pub. Come along and join in the Drupal fun!

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!
