Robert's Drupal book in the mail

Book cover

Last year in February, I introduced Robert Douglass to Matt Wade, an editor at Apress. Yesterday, 11 months later, I received a copy of the book, Building online communities with Drupal, phpBB and Wordpress, as a result of that introduction.

In roughly 200 pages (the part about Drupal), Robert Douglas teaches you everything you need to know in order to install, configure and maintain a Drupal site. I only spent 2 hours exploring the book so far and already it teached me some new things about some of the contributed modules. I doubt any Drupal user will be disappointed with this book. Highly recommended.

Lullabot

Drupal rockstars Matt Westgate and Jeff Robbins launched a new Drupal company: Lullabot. Lullabot provides Drupal consultation, training, and support. As part of their strategy (mission), they plan to publish video and audio podcasts for the Drupal community. Check out Matt's first videocast which shows you how to install Drupal 4.7.0.

I'd like to mirror those on drupal.org and link them from the release announcement when Drupal 4.7.0 is released.
