Get Started w/ Drupal The Right Way!

Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Maybe you know nothing about Drupal, but you've heard that it's really really hard.
Maybe you've played around with it and been blindsided by some of the quirkiness of the user interface and complexity.
Maybe you've gotten kind of far, but you feel like you missed out on the foundations of Drupal and wish you had a better grasp of how Drupal really works.

No matter what situation you find yourself in, join me as we spend a whole day building a simple, but powerful, blog and article site together as a class.

We'll go step by step and configure:

  • Menus

  • Blocks

  • Nodes

  • Content Types

  • Fields

  • Images

  • Listing pages [that's VIEWS!]

  • PANELS [New Topic This Year!]

  • And more!

Learning Objectives

  • How does Drupal manage content?

  • Where in the Drupal admin menus do I get anything done?

  • How do I control the use of images in Drupal?

  • How do I categorize my content?

  • How do I create useful navigation elements that leverage my information architecture?

  • How do I manage users?

  • How can I stop pounding my head against the keyboard and actually get stuff done in Drupal!


Come as you are. BRING YOUR LAPTOP. Bring your frustrations, confusions, and misgivings about Drupal. To follow along with me, you'll need a Drupal install. If you have a fully functional webserver on your desktop, feel free to use it. If not, then get a free sandbox from Pantheon Systems We'll fire up a Pantheon instance at the beginning of class so you can grab one then or now.
