Event Details

We are happy to announce that eresus will hold the first ever Acquia training on Drupal for Greek Drupal lovers. Having acquired official partnership with Acquia, we are able to bring to the Greek community the full program of trainings, including course documents and presentations

You know how to make flexible content types, how to structure your site with custom paths and menus, and how to create dynamic lists of content with Drupal. And yet - you've found the limitations of the core block system to place the content on your site. Now you want to know how you can get control of where content is placed in your page structure.

Drupal has a variety of approaches to making dynamic layouts, and in this course you will see how to use them, and find the right approach for you. You will learn techniques and best practices for configuring a flexible and extendable layout for your site, then you'll learn how to get more control over the look and feel by creating a custom theme in Drupal.
You'll see how to develop on the shoulders of giants, and save yourself buckets of time in making easy to configure, responsive and smart layouts. You will also understand best practices in making your site secure and fast, and easy to maintain.

Course is a repeat of October 12 & 13, for those who can't make it to this course's dates.

Duration: 2 days

Prerequisites: 

To get the most out of this course, it's essential that you have site building skills. As well as familiarity with HTML and CSS. PHP is not required. Site building skills are outlined on our Drupal in a Day and Site Building course descriptions.
