Using Formulas with Views & Hook Views Query Alter

Requirement: Get a list of store locations within a mileage range.

Setup: A Location content type with fields for the address, zipcode, city and state. Client wanted them separately so using the Location or Geolocation would not have done much for us. Though I only spent less than 30 minutes with each of these to see what they had to offer for what was needed.

Challenge: Perform a mathematical formula in Views using the hook_views_query_alter.

Beans - Create, Preprocess, and Theme.

This is a simple example of code (template) snippets to work with Beans, including the creation, preprocessors, and theming.

For this example I will be creating the Bean through the GUI and locking it in a Feature. This is good for high-paced development, and at least for what I have used Beans for, I haven't had the need to create one programmatically, yet.

Beans turns blocks into an entity, Block Types; which then you can create instances of each block type, have fields, view modes, etc. Just like you would with a content type.

Eclipse Plugins I Can't Live Without

Since I have been working mostly on back-end development, specially under the Content Management System (CMS) Drupal. I prefer to use Galileo's flavor of Eclipse. The reason why I have always use Eclipse is simply because I was introduced to it while developing Java applications as well as Android Apps.

Interview Questions

These are some of the most common questions I have been asked and ask myself on interviews for LAMP positions. I will update these questions and possibly answer some of them on my spare time.

Something important: If you mention knowing something on your resume, expect to be asked about it.


Note taking questions.
