Use Case

Following use case is implemented in this module i.e

Create a new content type in Drupal 7 called ​Event​.

The new ​Event​ content type should have four fields: a) Event name (type: Text) b) Event details (type: Longtext) c) Event date (type: Date. Use the ​Date​ module) (Include a start and end date) d) Event location (type: Postal address. Use the ​Address Field​ module)

Write a custom module that updates the Event node title when an Event is added or saved. a) The Event title should be a combination of the Events fields as such: “​Event name - Event date (day of the week) Event location (city)”. b) Example: My birthday - Wednesday Chicago c) The day of the week should be based off of the Event start date’s day. d) After the node has been created, only run the update code if any of the fields have been changed when saving the node. e) The module should create a custom block on the homepage with three upcoming Events, including their details, location, and dates in order of most recent first. Set the title of the block to ​Upcoming Events​. The title should use h3 markup. Dates should appear italicized.

Provide this module so as if either downloaded or cloned, it should perform all actions mentioned above.
