Create Drupal 7 Modules from scratch
Drupal 7 Module Development is a new book from Packt that teaches developers to write their own Drupal modules, themes, and libraries. Written by six experienced Drupal developers, this book, specifically written for Drupal 7 development, focuses on the programming secrets, as well as helps developers discover powerful new tools in Drupal 7.
Drupal is an Open Source Content Management System used for knowledge management and business collaboration. The advanced URL control in Drupal allows users to structure and/or edit their site’s content. Having thousands of add-on modules and designs, Drupal helps build everything from personal blogs to enterprise applications.
Drupal 7 Module Development walks users through the development of complete Drupal modules and shows how to add various features. It introduces PHP developers to the powerful new Drupal 7 tools and strategies for writing custom Drupal code, using which, readers can explore the major APIs to build successful Drupal websites.
With the help of this book, users will be able to test their code programmatically, and apply the principles of Test Drive Development (TDD) to it. They will also learn to create custom content types and entities, and build modules, thereby extending Drupal's core functionality.
PHP developers and Drupal users interested in Drupal development will find this book to be an interesting and beneficial read. This book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit http://www.packtpub.com/drupal-7-module-development/book

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
