Continuing on our quest to find more efficient and intuitive ways to work with Drupal brings us to the November meetup... Theming Views.
The October meetup demonstrated that using entities can drastically cut down dev time, create very intuitive and elegant node add/edit displays, build out extensive data models in a simple to follow-logical thought process and allow for lightning fast related page mashups 3-4-5 or more levels deep.
Now let's tame a beast that we all battle at some point... Theming Views. Template files ? HA! I think NOT!
