Blob of contradictions


5 days of Drupal challenge

Tue, 09/20/2011 - 09:36 -- btmash

Last week, Jakub Suchy proposed an action for Drupal developers to contribute 30 minutes each day for 5 days (this week) towards the Drupal community. This can involve anything from providing support on forums/irc to writing/reviewing patches to documentation (and so on and so forth). So I am laying out some of my plans and join us in making Drupal better for everyone.

Drupal and "Hacking" core - one possible approach

Tweet on twitter by me: Presented on hacking Drupal Core. No burning car (yet).

Over the years, I've seen and heard the phrase "Don't hack core!" mentioned by countless Drupal developers, designers, site administrators, etc. There are many blog posts on the matter (the most recent being a few weeks ago though his stance is slightly different from what I see from the rest of the community) and the number of kittens that die whenever someone hacks core. There was even a wristband created a few Drupal Conferences back. Heck, I may have had it and worn it at some point. Read on to find out.
