The Art & Magic of Module Selection

You're stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to community modules. They're awesome and free but picking the right one can take a lot of trial and error. The only way to tell what a module is doing is to read the code - but that's not an option for everyone.

This session will show you how to make sense of a module's Project page, how to spot red flags before you install, and how to ask and get help in the issue queues. We'll show you what the pros know.

This talk is for beginners, site administrators, account managers and else who needs to evaluate modules for inclusion on their site or project.
