Drupal for MVC Developers

Are you starting on your first Drupal site coming from another MVC Framework? Things are a bit different here and if you're like me, your first Drupal experience will be frustrating, painful and your site will suck. This is the session I wish I had gone to before doing my first Drupal site. We'll compare MVC Frameworks and Drupal and discuss pros and cons. We'll talk about the site building philosophy of Drupal and discuss best practices for customizing your Drupal site.

Disclaimer: I am a backend programmer so I will be focusing mostly on how Drupal handles backend solutions to common web problems such as collecting data via forms, storing data, manipulating, querying and displaying data, implementing business logic, routing incoming requests, etc...
