Rules is a powerful module that is used to automate actions on your Drupal site. You make site changes automatically, based on "rules" ... if X happens, then do Y.
In this series, Brian demonstrates the basics of Rules and gives us a walk through for notifying an author when someone makes a comment on their article and more.
I got back into Drupal about a year before Drupal 7 was released, so I built a couple of sites in Drupal 6. Then in January I completely switched over to D7 when it was released. Because I decided to make the switch right away, I was running into a lot of bugs/issues that hadn't been resolved yet. So, I started to make videos helping other people with the problems I found.
With the videos I made, I realized that I had shown some solutions, but people still had a lot of questions about edge cases. That was when I saw the light, and had the idea to put together series of short videos covering different topics. This format allowed me go in-depth with each module. I'm glad to be sharing these videos on OSTraining!
