[Beginner] Welcome to Drupal(DevDays)! - Krimson (D0.03)

A session at Drupal Developer Days: Brussels

Saturday 5th February, 2011

10:00am to 10:45am (WET)

How do I get the most out of Drupal? How does it all work? What sessions should I go to at? What about this community thing?

We want you to be part of Drupal! In this session, we'll cover some of the most common questions that come up when choosing Drupal and how to get started once you've made that choice. Helping users with widely varying experience get the most out of Drupal at Acquia has given us some insights about getting to know Drupal and how it can best work for you.

Drupal is more than code. We'll show you some of the online and offline structures, customs and practices that make Drupal so much more than a bunch of code: resources, user groups, discussions, equality, acceptance, meeting other Drupalistas, hallway/session/online etiquette, "What is a BOF anyway?", what we mean by "the more you give, the more you get back", and more.

Make the most of your time at the Drupal Developer Days. We'll suggest other sessions you should see to get more in-depth knowledge about topics we touch on in our session.

Some of the things we'll cover:

  • Drupal terminology and jargon
  • What goes on under the hood
  • Content and its (re)use
  • Taxonomy, Views, Theming, e-commerce, internationalization
  • Getting started with Drupal
  • Community: be part of it, rights, resources, responsibilities and fun!

Intended audience: Newcomers to Drupal - decision makers, designers, coders, and all others! We will focus on how to be part of Drupal: how not to be shy, how to find others who share your interests, and how you can get and give the most in the community.
