My copy of Pro Drupal Development arrived in the mail the other day. So far it's very programmer-targeted, but good. I need more time to just sit down and read it. :-)
I did notice one thing that caught my eye, though. In the Acknowledgments, the authors thank
...the members of the #drupal internet relay chat channel, who put up with the constant questioning of how things worked, why things were written a certain way, or whether or not a bit of code was brilliant or made no sense at all.... Among them are... Larry Crell...
I don't know who this "Larry Crell" is, but he must have done something. :-) Or maybe they mean Larry Garfield, with IRC nick of Crell? I don't know what I actually did, but thanks guys!
And if there really is a Larry Crell out there in the Drupal world, stop by Chicago sometime! I'll buy you dinner.
