Your Guide, Blair Wadman

I been developing custom functionality with Drupal to a high level for over 6 years for leading clients including NBC Universal, Bauer, Haymarket Media and Dennis Publishing. When I was first learning module development, it was hard to know where to start.

I have written a book, Master Drupal 7 Module Development, to help people scale the learning curve without the struggle. This email course contains extracts from the book to help you get started for free.
