  • Workshop: Dive into Drupal (for beginners)

    by Christopher Borkowski

    Free and open source, the Drupal Content Management System (CMS) allows anyone to easily create and manage websites. Many museums and other nonprofit organizations have started using Drupal because of its numerous add-on modules and designs that empower users to create robust, interactive, feature-rich sites. With Drupal, users can integrate countless content types, including videos, blogs, polls, calendars, social networking feeds, and additional features developed by others in the museum community. The Balboa Park Online Collaborative (BPOC) has already migrated more than a dozen of its museum members to Drupal, and many of the individuals who are now responsible for updating the sites had little or no web development experience prior to the Drupal switch. This workshop will offer an introduction to installing and using Drupal.
