For the first time ever, CDMUG is proud to announce Fredric Mitchell who will be presenting "CTools and AJAX Cache". Fredric is a developer at Treehouse Agency, a boutique Drupal firm servicing clients all around the world. He's been hovering around in the Drupal community since his days at Palantir.net and continues to be a paying Drupal Association individual member. You can find some of his work through his freelance hub at brightplum.com and pops in, answering questions on drupal.org under the name fmitchell. Always obsessed with the cleanest and simplest UI principles, Fredric is in love with Mercurial and Drush and thinks Drupal is doing great things with their push towards distributions.
CTools is a developer's carpenter toolbox. While the in-code commenting provides a wealth of information, there are a few UI elements that you can easily tie into your custom modules. This presentation will go over some of those tools as well as cover a nice integration with Ajaxcache, a module designed to keep your ajax-driven development fast and furious. We may even throw in some goodies for Dialog module as well.
