As there must be Rules at the Drupalcon Munich as well, I've had a Rules session together with Richard Jones from i-KOS. Head over to the session page for a summary and find the slides attached attached to this post as well. Moreover, you can find all the screencasts we've used during the presentation here as well. It's a real Drupal commerce site we've been using in the session to show how Rules can be used to solve real life problems.

At the Drupalcon Denver I've given a talk called "Drupalize your data: use entities!". Check out the recording of my talk and find the slides attached: Also, I've been instructing at the "Rules Mastery" training, together with Johan Falk, Dick Olsson and Klaus Purer. The training materials are all available online so check them out at http://tinyurl.com/rulesmastery! To get into Rules check out the The tiny book of Rules - kudos to Johan Falk again :-)

Drupalcon San Francisco

DrupalCon San Francisco was an amazing DrupalCon - about 3000 attendees!!! I had really great luck to be there at all, we passed the volcano ash by one day! Sadly lots of European Drupalistas had not so much luck :( I really enjoyed the conference, in particular the core developer summit & the code sprints. Gladly the lightning talk I submitted for the core developer summit was selected, so I gave a short talk about Drupal's data APIs - Why inhomogeneous APIs suck - clearly entities are the way to go!

Drupalcon and the Rules BETA1!

I'm happy to announce the rules 6.x 1.0 BETA 1 release. Check out the rules project page and try it. Now the API is frozen and modules developers are encouraged to write module integration and to port their workflow-ng integration to rules. You can find the documentation here. To get token support everywhere in your actions you just have to install the latest development snapshot of it. Now basically everything is there, including support for
  • firing core actions
  • grouping rules in rule sets
  • scheduling arbitrary rule sets
  • a module input evaluation system
  • and much more!
If you want to know more details about the improvements done for rules 6.x check out the development status page or the slides from the drupalcon session.
