Issue 43 July 12, 2012
This week's Drupal News includes the ramp up to DrupalCon Munich and several Drupalers sharing their Mac development setups.
DrupalCon Munich will kick off with Dries on Tuesday and wind down on Thursday with Fabian Pontencier of the Symfony. Looks like another great DrupalCon.
As someone who has attended paid Drupal training events in the past I can say that they are worth the investment. If you need to get up to speed quickly you should definitely investigate these trainings.
