Hi, drupalers! Enjoying your summer? Time to make plans for your awesome autumn! We have checked the forecasts, analyzed the position of stars, written php scripts to define the luckiest date and place for you. Here you go, the answer is: October 17-18, Lviv Euro DrupalCamp. The time and place cannot be changed ;)

There are several tools that that makes designing for Drupal much, much easier.
In particular, we recommend the Theme developer module and also Firebug.
Think of Theme developer as a Drupal-specific version of Firebug. Using Theme developer you can click on any element of your Drupal site and get a breakdown of how it was built.
