Event Details

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
  • Views
  • taxonomy
  • 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.

Meet your trainer

Ray Saltini photoRay Saltini has been an active member of the Drupal community since 2005 as a developer, business owner and more recently as a Drupal Evangelist for Blink Reaction. As Director of the Blink Institute he helps Fortune 100 organizations adopt Drupal and has delivered training and talks in the US and Europe at community events and private engagements, including free and reduced price training for folks just starting to learn Drupal. 

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.

Not anymore.

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.

Join us and discover what you are capable of when you build with Drupal!

Track: Developing with Drupal

Why is this class free?

Providing this class free of charge is one of the many ways we give back to the open source community. 

Blink is highly committed to helping organizations and individuals adopt Drupal successfully. At Blink we believe great training helps create great, results-oriented websites. That's a win-win-win for you, Drupal and Blink.

This class was previously offered at $799. Please consider supporting the Drupal Association instead. Individual membership is only $15.
