This workshop is a hands-on introduction to building a web site using Drupal. It is meant for people who are very new to Drupal, and who want to learn how to build web sites with Drupal. We will cover questions like "What can Drupal do?", "Why choose Drupal?", and general concepts of on-line content management with a database behind your web site. Then we'll work through the basics of setting up a Drupal site. See http://poplarclass.com/home-spokane-2011 for more details.
We need a few volunteers who can come each day -- people with some site building experience in Drupal, who can help students who get stuck or fall behind. You should be familiar with Views, Fields, Content Types, Menus, and Blocks (i.e., you don't have to be an expert in esoteric stuff, but should have some mastery of the basics of Drupal). If you would like to help out with the workshop, please add a comment here.
