In Drupal 7 a lot of CCK's power has been brought into core. Now it's very easy to create a custom field for those edge cases where a standard text/number field just doesn't cut it.

In my presentation I'll discuss the following topics:

  • Intro to fields
  • Walk through the creation of a custom field module
  • Explain all field hooks
  • Explain where to find documentation
  • Talk about other contrib field based modules
