Snippets from the first official day of DrupalCon

Michelle L: Why no node body - it prints all values in the body, makes it hard to isolate the real body when theming.

"I always make my own custom breadcrumbs in the theme layer."

Eric G. of Development Seed:

We identified clients with similar interests and needs and started building

And lots of clients, what they really care about, is content deployment.

Code reuse: Date formats are hell.

Drupal and CiviCRM Jane Goodall Institute non-profit session

In summary: CiviCRM and Drupal worked great for us. Not really any detail, maybe a good add for non-tech people in an org.

We're trying to get our stories out.

We needed better tools.

Advantages of re-using:

Change core Overlay module to pop up for contextual links but not for main admin menu links

Webchick indicates that, if there is not an issue posted yet, there has been discussion on IRC and many feel that one or a partial solution is to split it to only be used by default for truly contextual links-- the links you reach from a page-- edit menu, edit block, edit node.
