Exaltation of Larks - Expert Drupal strategy, consulting, development and training This one-day workshop gives you a comprehensive tutorial on the right way to manage your Drupal website. You'll learn about version control for your code and ways to manage changes in your data. You’ll also see how the Features module can enable you to keep your configuration changes in version control.

We'll cover industry-approved deployment strategies that let you move smoothly through development, testing and live environments. You’ll get a high-level overview of how to modify the way your site looks by sub-theming, preventing hours of frustration should your original theme be updated.

What you will learn:

  • Using version control with Drupal
  • Maintaining development, testing and production environments
  • Managing configuration changes using the Features module
  • Creating a basic sub-theme
  • Creating a basic module
  • Understanding Drupal’s API and the hook system

Yeah, honestly, I'm scratching my head wondering why these are showing up in Santa Cruz and Bay Area groups, too.

Cross posting to tons of locations is kind of christefano's thing. When I was in San Diego, we'd also get a ton of posts from events he was putting on in LA. He's also posting for this event in Vegas and elsewhere. =\
