Drupal Training for Web Developers Wednesday, February 1, 2011, 9 am-4 pm, CG2-CTTC Facilitator: Carl Wiedemann, Wiedemann Consulting Overview:  Learn to use the Drupal Content Managing System (CMS) to build dynamic, interactive websites. A CMS requires you to think differently about how you build a website. In this full-day class, participants will dive into the tools Drupal provides to web developers to build the design, structure, and functionality of a website as well as how it enables content creation for a broader variety of non-technical staff. Drupal is highly extensible via a vast offering of modules and participants will practice using some of the most useful ones on their own Drupal server, with hands-on experience creating content types, views, menus, blocks, sections, as well as customizing a theme.  At the end of this class, participants will have the knowledge needed to begin building a vibrant, dynamic website in Drupal!

Designed for web developers/designers tasked with building Drupal websites.  Prerequisites: Knowledge of HTML and CSS, and some familiarity with Drupal and using Drupal tools.  Completion of the Drupal Training for Content Contributors class, or similar knowledge, is highly recommended.
