Just finished giving a presentation on the Rules module in Drupal 7 for ASU Dev Day. Great audience, great venue (Skysong!), and my first time visiting Tempe, despite working for ASU for a few years now. Funny how things work these days, telecommuting and all.
Rules is a definite shining star in Drupal 7. Wish there was video for the presentation that I could share, but alas.
I presented a session on "Essential Drupal Modules" at today's Boise Code Camp. The talk highlighted the modules most every Drupal installation should have, as well as a number of gap-fitting modules that fill a few UI and functionality deficits found in Drupal core. Additionally I included a segment on finding and evaluating modules.
