I recently started to play with drupal 7. As far as i can see it has it's own perspective in many things about how to manipulate content. It seems very solid software and by far better core code structure than its competitor Joomla although it follows procedural architecture.
Has anyone here works with drupal 7 or drupal 6? What's your opinion about this software??

Do you suggest any quality video tutorials about that or how to build modules?
Drupal has some learning curve at first but after that you can make cool stuff with it

This site's running Drupal 6 with Zen theme. /forum goes to a SMF forum
Drupal 6 with eCommerce
Drupal 6 with SMF
I don't know any video tutorials, just have a book "Pro Drupal Development" by John K. Vandyk.

I started with Drupal 6 and haven't moved on yet. You also need to make sure your version of php5 is the correct one they recommend 5.3 but no lower than 5.2.5. Some hosts may not have updated their version of php, you need to check.

For example if you use the Form API to create your own custom forms for some module or something ,drupal automatically supplies you with
3. clean code
I've found some video tutorials at lynda.com and at lullabot.com but they are not for free.

Big thing for beginners to learn is how to use 2 modules, that really should be in core of Drupal 6:
CCK (Content Creation Kit) (http://drupal.org/project/cck)
"Views" is basically creating custom front-end pages, from any content-type or combination of them, and you can save the results as a page/feed/block/xml etc... and even link to it from the menu. For example all these author and book pages are done with Views module:
CCK is admin area module, basically lets you create custom fields and attach them to a content-type.

These are some modules that I think is necessary for every drupal site
- GOOGLE NALYTICS
- VIEWS - CTOOLS
- XML SITEMAP
- GLOBAL REDIRECT
- PAGE TITLE
- SEO CHECKLIST
- PATH REDIRECT
- GLOBAL REDIRECT
- CUSTOM SEARCH
- DEVEL MODULE
CCK and DATE and IMAGE modules are now in core in drupal 7
Any add from you BeeDev?
