Commerce Guys

Have you already studied to your heart's content the touristy attractions of Drupal 7 (Entity API, Fields, AJAX framework, etc.)? Looking to see something unexpected in Drupal 7? You're in luck.

Visit with me the semi-secret neighborhoods of Drupal 7, only known by some natives.

  • Queues and Jobs: execute long-running jobs easily and reliably
  • Pluggeable caches: do you love Cache Router, but hope it was properly maintained?
  • Extensible database drivers: ever wanted to be able to alter the behavior of the database engine, to optimize your cluster?
  • Stream wrappers: store your files in a scalable way
  • Intelligent session handler and external cache: serve 100% of your anonymous pages from cache
  • And even more.
