  2. 2. Why? * Nodes rocks! Why change? * This WEEK, 6 years ago, nodes went into core. Drupal 3. * Very extensible, but reaching the limits
  3. 3. Building * Free-for-all approach * DB/Structure mismatch (sometimes necessary) * Collisions (vid, pid, bid)
  4. 4. Rendering * Some improvements in 5 * Only two modes -- teaser, full * Only HTML
  5. 5. Extending * Node hooks * Nodeapi to extend nodes * CCK via fields, widgets, etc
  6. 6. Pitfalls * Shufling the chairs * Performance * Conversion
  7. 7. Singing and Dancing
