Views

Its been a while

I have been really busy the last few day. On Saturday I finished the Views tutorial. It was very enlightening and its nice to be able to understand the makings of the different content types. I ended up using what I learned the next day after starting the Commerce KickStart Tutorial. Unfortunately the distribution changed a lot since the tutorial was done. It was a struggle but I did get a version of Drupal up that allowed me to be able to follow the tutorial, but that also meant that I had to use my lesson on Views to recreate some of then different content-types used in the commerce package. I felt proud to be able to figure that out myself.

Back on track?

The last couple of days I seem to be doing better at refocusing on the task-at-hand.  Last night I finally completed the tutorial I started on "Photoshop CS5 for Web" on Lynda.com (http://www.lynda.com/). I have been on Lynda.com for almost as long as I have been working with Drupal.  I find video tutorials are the way to go for learning.  I guess that is because I'm more of a "visual" person.  I learn better by seeing rather than reading (though I have read through many self-taught disciplines over the years).
