Efficiency has always been a key part when it comes to developing any type of program. The Schema module is a Drupal module that helps a developer be more efficient and helps cut down time when creating a hook_schema() function. In Drupal 7, hook_schema() is called at both install and uninstall time, which helps create/delete a custom table in the database. This function lives inside the module’s .install file. Click here to see what a hook_schema() looks like. Creating a hook_schema() manually is time consuming and more likely to have errors when creating the array, whereas using the Schema module’s structure generation is quick and accurate. Some key features of the Schema module are providing API functions, schema structure generation, and schema comparison.

Here at Stauffer we do a lot of work with universities, and often times our options are limited in choices of server hardware and platform configuration options. A recent university client required that we build a production environment on Windows 2008 Server setup on a virtual machine provisioned from the university’s central IT department.

At DrupalCamp LA, I talked about Drupal + Apache Solr because it is a strong search index for Drupal.

Jacob Pitassi and I presented at DrupalCamp LA to provide some very basic PHP knowledge that will make for better themers. Jacob does a lot of the technical interviewing for Stauffer and has found that many people claim to be themers, but do not know a lick of PHP. While he is not expecting themers to write complicated functions, he does expect them to know how to pull an element out of an array to display.
