Drush Make is Easy to Use

At the recent PNW Drupal Summit held in Portland, Oregon, I attended a session by Jonathon Hedstrom about Drush Make. Here are my notes:

Drush Make is:
  • used to make Drupal Distributions
  • has site manifest including every version and patch
  • easy for devs to quickly get up to speed on a project
  • you can eliminate duplicate repositories
  • encourages contributing back to the community

About the PNW Drupal Summit in Vancouver, Canada

First written Oct. 4, 2010: I think the highlight of the Summit for me was the DrupalChix BOF (Birds of Feather) held on Sunday afternon. About 12 women who work with Drupal met together for small group informal discussion. It was interesting to listen to each person’s intro as they told how they got started with Drupal.
