FD New Jersey 2012: V8 versus Turbo



At Round 4 of Formula Drift in New Jersey, we found ourselves coming back to the question: What is more ideal for drivers… V8 or Turbo? It’s a question that’s been on everyone’s mind lately. We walked around with Jarod DeAnda to ask some of the drivers their opinions. Check out our first installment of “FD: V8 vs Turbo.”

So far, no one really knows… but stay tuned for Part 2, as we continue the search for an answer!

Enjoy!

Thanks to Pacific NW local Medium Troy for this music!

Learn Drupal 14f: Preprocessing 1



This screencast is a part of the epic learning series “Four weeks of Drupal”, chapter “Introduction to theming”. You can view the full series at http://dev.nodeone.se/en/four-weeks-of-drupal.

Please post any comments over there, or we won’t see them. Sorry.

This screencast introduces the concept of *preprocess functions* – functions usually used for adding new variables to your template files. By using preprocess functions you can move complex logic out of the template files, and feed the templates with pre-made variables instead. This is useful for two reasons:
1. Template files become easier to read if there is a minimal of PHP in them
2. Template files may be used a lot of times on a single page load. Moving complex stuff into preprocess functions is good from a performance point of view.

Preprocess functions are places in the *template.php* file of your theme – the theming ninja’s weapon of choice. The name of the preprocess function should be YOUR_THEME_preprocess_THEME_HOOK, which for example could translate to jean_preprocess_block. (Template suggestions aren’t used in preprocess functions – only the ‘base’ name of the template file is relevant.)

*When adding new variables to template files, make sure to end any variable name with unsafe content with ‘_unsafe’. That will help people to use it in a safe way.*
