In the podcast, Marek and I talk a little about his history in Drupal and technology and I introduce the idea of jam's (virtual) Drupal Camp. In his presentation, Marek Sotak, founder of Inline Manual and longtime Drupal developer, talks about giving your clients and site visitors the help they need without sacrificing all your productive time in the very first session of jam's Drupal Camp! "What's this jam's Drupal Camp all about?" I hear you ask? Read this kickoff announcement and call for sessions!

Meet Chris Porter, Drupal hero

Chris Porter talks about the satisfaction of helping people solve the hard problems that will let them run their Drupal installations and their businesses better.

He says he feels like a hero sometimes, because he's welcomed by people who have invited him to come and help, rather than being the consultant who shows up because someone is forced to buy help for a proprietary system.

Adding help text to your Drupal forms using the Popups API

It seems fairly often that I put links into Drupal help text. It's a great way to show some extended descriptions or direct people to administrative options. The only annoying thing is that it really disrupts the UX. If you are entering a new node, you risk leaving an unsaved form. If you use target="_blank" then you risk confusion by having multiple windows open.
