Conversational Drupan [sic]

Imagine an intro Drupal course. For humans who know a little about HTML, Web pages, nav bars.

Course goal: how to speak conversational Drupan. The language Drupalistas speak, day to day.

That means knowing how Drupalistas think. Concepts like blocks. Patterns like "A list o' content, w' teasers? 'at's a view."

More Drupan: There's core, changes slowly. There's core-ish things like Views and Admin menu. There's the Wild West Contrib Show.

How to choose, from the Contrib Show? That's part of speaking Drupan.
