Drupal Overview - Drupal Training Curriculum for Drupal Companies

Back to Drupal Training Syllabus

Drupal Overview

Drupal is designed to be the perfect content management solution for non technical users who need both simplicity and flexibility. Drupal achieves this through its modular approach to site building. Unlike other CMSs, Drupal isn’t a pre build house, but rather a collection of blocks, iron rods, wood, frames, etc., that a builder can easily connect together. With Drupal, a maker could build a house, but she or he could just as easily build a shop, theatre, or office. For this reason, Drupal may be described as both a content management system and a content management framework—one unified system that strives to have the strengths of both, without their deficiencies.

[Webinar] Developing Layouts in Backdrop CMS, The Drupal Fork

Start: 
2016-02-24 16:00 - 17:00 Europe/London
Event type: 
Training (free or commercial)

Backdrop is very similar to Drupal 7 in terms of code while providing many of the features of Drupal 8. However, Backdrop has a different project philosophy from Drupal, in that it values backwards-compatibility. It is the belief of the project that maintaining a greater level of compatibility will lower the overall cost of learning, building, and maintenance of software; making Backdrop better suited to lower-budget sites than Drupal 8. Join the webinar to find out why Backdrop was created and learn about it's unique Layout module.

[Webinar] Drupal 8 Accessibility: What We Didn't Get in Core (Yet!)

Start: 
2016-02-03 16:00 - 17:00 Europe/London
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Training (free or commercial)

We accomplished a great deal with Drupal 7’s accessibility when it was released in 2011. In Drupal 8, the community built on this and added broader support for ARIA & ATAG, two W3C standards which were not stable in 2011. D8 has also seen many enhancements for keyboard only users, low vision users and people who are colour blind. Drupal stands as the most accessible CMS available, but there is a great deal still to be done.

[Webinar] Native CRM Systems on Drupal

Start:

Organizers: 
Event type: 
Training (free or commercial)

If you have ever had to build a website for a client and host/integrate/consult with their CRM system, you have probably had this thought before: “Why don't they build this in Drupal?!” Most CRM systems are great for exactly one thing; be it Enterprise, Campaigns or Events. But as soon as you have a specific need that no one thought of before, the level of customisation of the architecture/reporting doesn't quite do it.
