Participating in DrupalCampTO


Friday, October 15, 2010 to Saturday, October 16, 2010

I will be participating in Drupal Camp Toronto (DrupalCampTO), October 15 - 16, 2010. I have proposed the following two sessions and am excited about the opportunity to share my knowledge with the Drupal community in Toronto.

There are several field types, widgets (used to enter field values) and formatters (used to display field values) in Drupal 7. Other fields can be found
as contributed modules. But, what happens if you cannot find the field type, widget or formatter you need?
