Drupal in a Day - Reading UK 19 April 2013

Start: 
2013-04-19 09:15 - 16:30 UTC
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Training (free or commercial)

Hello folks!

Acquia just moved to Reading. I'm excited to offer a training course for anyone who is curious about Drupal and based in Reading or surrounds.

I proposed to run this course for people who were brand new to Drupal. Perhaps those who had heard about it, but never had a chance to try it out yet. This course is for people who have prior experience with web development and know HTML/CSS and other CMSs or frameworks.

I assume folks in this group will likely already know Drupal. So, if you know someone who fits that bill, please pass this along.

Mentored Drupal Training at Droplabs on March 15, 2013: Advanced Site Building

Start: 
2013-03-15 12:00 - 15:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Join us at Droplabs for a Build a Module.com mentored training. This training is from 12-3pm. Bring your laptop, your lunch and learn Drupal!

Please bring a WiFi-enabled computer that you can use to connect to the internet and watch videos on (and a set of headphones). Those without headphones can buy or rent headphones from the venue.

    Sign up today at http://www.larks.la/training  

The entire Build a Module.com library is available during our mentored Drupal training, and this time we will be focusing on the Advanced Site Building series:

   http://buildamodule.com/video/advanced-site-building-in-drupal-7-welcome...  

Here is a description of Advanced Site Building:

Welcome to the "Advanced Site Building" collection. In this series, we're going to be covering many of Drupal's most powerful modules for laying out and displaying information on a site. The tools you'll be learning are ones that you'll find yourself using on nearly every Drupal project. We'll be exploring how to build complicated displays of content with the Views module.

How to lay out pieces of a page using Panels, Display Suite and Context. We'll explore how to import content using the Feeds module and how to create and modify a slideshow with the Views Slideshow module. We'll also look at displaying and manage content on a site as well as how to protect our site from the inevitable spam we'll get.

We'll dive into which modules are helpful for speeding up the administration of your site, but most importantly, we're going to explore how all of these pieces fit together; where these modules overlap in functionality, and how to decide which tools are right for which context. There's a lot of modules out there, and figuring out which ones are right for a particular job is hard. And if you start with the wrong tools, you could find it time consuming and frustrating to change gears later on.

So, this collection of videos will speed you through the process of how to pick the right tools and will expose you to ways of thinking about these tools that will really pay off in the long run. If you already have a little experience with Drupal, or have watched the "Build Your First Drupal 7 Web Site" collection, you'll already know what you need to in order to start with these videos. If you don't have that experience, you may find that we gloss over some basic Drupal concepts.

Pricing

Suggested donation: $20.

No one will be turned away from this workshop. If you are unable to donate to Droplabs we ask that you volunteer some time helping Droplabs run more smoothly when you drop by and cowork.

Classroom space is limited, so please sign up early.

About Mentored Training

What's the difference between this mentored training and the 3-hour lunch-and-learn Introduction to Drupal Workshop that we're offering next door at the same time?

In short, the 3-hour introductory workshop is better suited toward business owners and project managers. This mentored training is geared for folks who are interested in diving deeper into Drupal's systems and APIs, module or theme development or using popular contributed modules (e.g. Views, Rules, Features, etc.) for site building.

    Drupal distro for designing courses

    (This is going out on several channels. Apologies if you get more than one copy.)

    There are many Web sites and tools for authoring textbooks: iBooks Author, Flat World Knowledge, etc. Good tech, but there's a fundamental flaw in their specs. They're based on an obsolete view of learning.

    Education researchers have shown how we can help students learn STEM skills (STEM: science, tech, engineering and math). Deep learning, formative feedback, other things. We need to redesign authoring software based on these research findings.
