During this introductory class you will learn just how much you can do by installing and configuring Drupal's contributed modules. In the process, you'll learn about:
- best practices in Drupal project planning
- Drupal's inherent tools and subsystems
- custom content types
- search tools
- URL aliasing
- module selection
- customized site administration
- …and more!
And you won't write a stitch of code.
This is an introductory class focusing on concepts and built around demonstrations. If you're familiar with Drupal and want a hands on class check out our upcoming workshops.
Course materials: Attendees will receive a PDF manual which outlines step-by-step activities. Students must bring their own laptop computer.
Why be a builder?
Today's websites are dynamic, feature-rich, and very often collaboratively managed. In the old days, the cost and knowledge required to create such sites would put them out of reach for all but the most skilled developers and largest organizations.
The growth of powerful CMSs like Drupal has brought us to the world of the 'assembled web,' where sites are largely made up of pre-built components that are combined and configured--not custom-coded.
Yesterday's code-centric webmaster has evolved into the experience-centric site builder.
Drupal, with its contributed (in other words, FREE) modules and themes, gives the site builder an incredibly powerful and flexible toolkit. These tools make it possible to build sites that are interactive, easily integrated with popular services and applications, infinitely customizable, and capable of supporting multiple classes of users…all without writing a line of code.
