Block entities tips and tricks and Drupal in education

This is the May meetup of the Drupal community in Western Australia. This month we'll hear from:

  • Yohann Catherine, who will give us a few tips and tricks on how Beans can be used to create powerful blocks in Drupal.
  • Helen Burgess, who will tell us how Central Institute of Technology have been teaching Drupal in their IT courses and how we can help them to prepare WA's future Drupal developers.

As always: if you'd like to give a talk, or would like to hear about a particular topic, please contact me with your suggestions.

    Q: Is Beans an alternative to Views? (sorry for the noob question)

      Could be for a few things. You don't usually want to give you content authors access to views but with Bean you can give them access to a few settings.

    Looking forward to giving beans a go. I can think of many uses for it already.

      I am glad I learned of Beans just as I am starting to learn Drupal.

      The image gallery was probably a bad example though. A slideshow would have been a better one as you don't need a page for them. It's good if you have multiple slideshows on a website, 1 content type slideshow and 1 bean type for the settings e.g how many slides, which view mode, how many slides etc...They are reusable as well. I'm planning to use them with uuid for deployment.

    Hi all. I haven't been to a Drupal meet up before, but this one sounds right up my alley - I work with Educational tech at a University by day and do Drupal web design/development on the side. Hoping to be able to make it.
