If you had a chance to read my last post, you should now have a good basic understanding of the importance of Features programmatically. However, you ask, what’s the business case for spending the extra time to have your development company build a site using Features? Glad you asked!

At the end of this month on September 30th, Mediacurrent is helping organize the first-ever Atlanta Drupal Business Summit. To my knowledge, this is the only time an event tailored to non-developers (i.e. the “suits”) has been held in direct conjunction with a regional Drupalcamp. Let me be blunt, I think Drupal has a serious problem that it needs to address soon, very soon.

The famous Greek philosopher Aristotle stated, “Excellence is an art won by training and habituation.” Aristotle's dialogues have been used to teach an array of subjects from physics to poetry. Mediacurrent has heeded Aristotle's words and has recently stood up a new training division. As countless Drupal sites are launched daily across the web the demand for sound Drupal specific training has exploded. The increased number of Drupal books published over the last several years mirror the Drupal community’s desire for increased training.

This blog post is part of a series on Drupal distributions. The first post discussed the difference between distributions, installation profiles, and Features.
Drupal distributions are the foundation of what I like to call "Drupal as a product." Distributions are like pre-packaged websites: where Drupal core can be turned into any kind of website by configuring it and adding modules, distributions come pre-configured and with the modules needed for a certain type of website.

In the beginning of the year, Mediacurrent announced an alliance with Open Source Training. For the past few months, the partnership remained largely dormant as we found it difficult to balance the demands of Drupal site-building, while expanding our training services. Ultimately, we decided that we needed a dedicated resource to exclusively focus on Drupal training initiatives. With that said, we are pleased to announce Jordan Schmitt as Mediacurrent’s new Director of Drupal Training.
