Drupal for Site Builders is a 2-day, in-depth extension to the first course. This course is designed both for users with no Drupal experience, and for those who are familiar with Drupal and want to expand their knowledge, digging deeper into their sites. The course provides in-depth discussions on Drupal’s installation process and managing users, comments, and content. Participants will also review Drupal's block system, and learn how to use taxonomy to categorize their content.
On the first day, significant time is devoted to creating new content types using the Content Construction Kit (CCK) and exploring field types, widgets, and the corresponding settings.
The second day is dedicated entirely to CCK and Views. Views is a powerful tool that is used to create custom pages, blocks, and RSS feeds on your site. Participants will finish the day by creating a photo gallery using CCK, Imagefield, and Views.
In summary - those wishing to get more familiar with Drupal, at a high level, may wish to attend the first day - but those wishing to get a level of "end to end" experience with Drupal, would benefit from attending all three days. (more info)
