Become a Drupal Architect - Session 2 of 4: Writing maintainable, long-lasting code

Course details


Let's be honest: sometimes there are 4 ways to do anything in Drupal, and 3 of them are best practice depending on circumstances. Pick the wrong path and you might still build a functional website.. for now. 6 months later you may find that architectural decisions are coming back to hurt you - your site may have slowed down, crashed, feel like it is held together with duct tape, or become hard to refactor.

Our 4-part "Become a Drupal Architect" serious is designed to take the intermediate module developer to the next level. We want you to think higher level than code - it's time to think like an architect. This class is part 2 of the 4-part series, and it is focused on "Writing maintainable, long-lasting code". Classes in the series can be taken individually or as a series.
