Programmer's Guide to Drupal, 2nd Edition
Principles, Practices, and Pitfalls
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: October 2015
Pages: 236

If you’re a web programmer, your experiences have taught you certain lessons—and only some of them apply well to Drupal. Drupal has its own set of programming principles that require a different approach, and many programmers make mistakes when relying on skills they’ve used for other projects. This book will show you which programming techniques you can use—and which you should avoid—when building web applications with this popular content management framework.

Updated to cover both Drupal 7 and Drupal 8, the guidelines in this book demonstrate which programming practices conform to the "Drupal way" and which don’t. The book also serves as an excellent guide for Drupal 7 programmers looking to make the transition to Drupal 8.

  • Get an overview of Drupal, including Drupal core and add-on modules and themes
  • Learn Drupal’s basic programming principles, such as the ability to customize behavior and output with hooks
  • Compare Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 programming methods, APIs, and concepts
  • Discover common Drupal programming mistakes—and why hacking is one of them
  • Explore specific areas where you can put your programming skills to work
  • Learn about the new object-oriented Drupal 8 API, including plugins and services

Comments about oreilly Programmer's Guide to Drupal, 2nd Edition:

Jennifer is one of the Drupal Core documentation maintainers, and it shows is this book. Her writing is clear and concise, but not watered down. Writing about Drupal principles, rather than subsystems, will help users understand *why* Drupal works, and as a result, write better code. This is a valuable resource for any Drupal developer's bookshelf.

Comments about oreilly Programmer's Guide to Drupal, 2nd Edition:

If you're going to purchase a book about Drupal 8 - purchase one from someone who played a pivotal role in shaping Drupal 8.

As long-time maintainer and committer of Drupal core's documentation @jhodgdon knows Drupal inside and out.

Supporting her book in turn supports her work on Drupal core's code and documentation.
