Introduction to branching and merging in Git (a Drupal how-to)
 
04:07
This is one of over videos in a -hour series on http://buildamodule.com called "Change Management and Version Control". In this series we uncover how to use powerful tools to speed up and stabilize the Drupal development process. We begin with a thorough walk-through of Git, the version control system. After we cover how to patch modules and upgrade Drupal from one minor version to another, we demonstrate how to use the Features module to version control components of Drupal that aren't typically available to version control. Finally, we wrap up with how to integrate Drush - a powerful command line tool for Drupal - into your workflow to speed up the process of doing everything we discussed earlier in the series. You can watch over 7 hours of FREE focused Drupal video tutorials on http://buildamodule.com. To view the entire list of over videos (totaling over hours), simply go to http://buildamodule.com and scroll down. There are currently 5 collections available, including: Here's a short excerpt from the video: "In this section, we're going to talk about branching. Branching is the way that you can create different tracks of code that all have a common source. So for example, say you have multiple versions of your website, you have a release that you make and then you add some new changes, you add some new features, and then you make a new release, each of those releases may be their own branch. That way, as you're adding new features to the second version of your site, you can be working on and release..."

I run a Drupal shop, and several of my developers have used Build a Module.com to get up to speed with working in Drupal 7. From what I've heard, they found the experience extremely valuable, and what's great for us as a team is that they can always go back and review material when they're tackling a particular problem." "Firstly, let me say that I am finding your videos extremely helpful. It's always difficult at first to get into something new but your videos are really helping me find my way in."

Why the "Front End Development" series exists and what we'll be covering
 
01:58
I've been looking forward to making this series for a long time now. The front-end world has changed dramatically over the last few years and there are some excellent tools that makes it possible to build and manage much more complicated projects. But, a lot of us are also starting from scratch, with little or no experience with the three basic web site building blocks: HTML, CSS and JavaScript. So, this series is intended to both cover the basics and help us get to the point where we can integrate tools like the CSS preprocessor SASS, Grunt and Gulp, responsive design and those elusive responsive images. Along the way we'll also tackle accessibility, performance and SEO.

The difference between procedural and object-oriented programming

What SMACSS is and how we'll use it throughout this series
 
03:01
Given how flexible the CSS syntax is, it's easy to get trapped in analysis paralysis, trying to figure out the best way to name classes, create selectors, and apply your CSS styles. SMACSS, which stands for "Scalable, Modular Architecture for CSS" is one standard that can help clear the way. In this video, we talk about how we plan on applying SMACSS principles throughout the rest of the examples.

43:15
The source code for this talk (with some adjustments) is http://is.gd/beautifulforms . This is a 45-minute talk given at DrupalCamp Colorado, 2011. It covers how to work with some of the most interesting aspects of the Form API, including dynamically showing and hiding elements, and modifying existing forms. As an example, we convert the default search form to a Google suggestions-style format which auto-completes based on search history. Kind of fun!
