Drupal: Evaluating Contributed Modules

It's time for NYC Drupal Camp again!

This time, I'm involved in organizing the event and also doing a workshop on how to evaluate contributed modules. The workshop is geared towards a broad range of folks, anyone from novice to experienced users of Drupal (drupal is a free/open source Content Management System)

workshop outline:
There are thousands of contributed (non-core) modules available for drupal, how do you decide which ones to use? Geared towards new and intermediate users with little or no programing experience, this discussion will look into how to select the right module for any task -- how to compare modules that offer similar features, how to decide if a module is worth relying on, and a little bit on how to look into the code itself to evaluate the quality of a contributed module

Sober and clear analysis! Thank you.

I'm very new to drupal. My first official drupal event was drupalcon in Boston. While I enjoyed drupalcon, in retrospect that event was a highschool pep rally compared to drupalcamp. One of the hardest things for me to get past in the world of drupal is the intense boosterism that I get from most of the experienced drupal people. I attended your seminar at drupalcamp and really appreciated your sober tone and clear user-centric analysis of drupal and looking at drupal modules. Thank you.
