Entity API

[My other notes from DrupalCon Denver]

Which entities are there?

In core, comments, nodes, user accounts, taxonomy terms, feeds.

In addition, contrib modules can define entity types. Modules that define their own entities include Drupal Commerce, Organic groups, Profile2, Heartbeat and Message, and File entity.

With Drupal 7, there is a shift from node-centric modules to entity-centric modules. This is the future for Drupal.

Node.js, JavaScript and the Future of Drupal

Let's make the LAMP stack go "Vroom!" This is going to be a really high-level overview of performance.

Benchmarking vs Profiling

When we benchmark something, we're setting a baseline to compare against in the future. We want to say "it was this fast this long ago, and here's how we improved." Whereas profiling is telling what is fast and what is slow.


Has a lot of parameters you can set; I'll cover some basic ones.
