Webforms and Javascript

I like Javascript. There, I said it.

Static websites paired with a good CMS is a match made in heaven.

I’m going out on a limb by saying we may be on the cusp of a revolution as it relates to how we build, deploy and manage websites. That’s a strong claim, but witness the new Reese’s candy of web technologies: Static files combined with the content management system.

Drupal Views

Drupal is definitely not something you can master or even comprehend in a few weeks, or even a few months. All the little details start to take their toll after a while. But my personal savior and motivator as a Drupal newbie came in an immensely useful package that most Drupal developers might recognize.
