Welcome to Drupal! What now?

How do I get the most out of Drupal? How does it all work? What about this community thing I hear about?

We want you to be part of Drupal! Helping users with widely varying experience get the most out of Drupal at Acquia has given us some insights about getting to know Drupal and how it can best work for you.

Drupal is more than code. This webinar will show you some of the online and offline structures, customs and practices that make Drupal so much more than a bunch of code: resources, user groups, discussions, training, events (including "What is a BoF anyway?", the "hallway track", and the "beer track"), what we mean by "the more you give, the more you get back", "everybody's a contributor" and more.

Join Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire, Manager of Community Affairs, Olav Schettler, Robert Douglass and Andrew Melck from Acquia for a one-hour webinar that will cover some of the common questions that come up when choosing Drupal and how to get started once you've made that choice, including:

  • Drupal is software, why do I keep hearing about a "community"?
  • Value and values: Can I pay the rent and change the world?
  • Drupal terminology and jargon.
  • Fast and easy ways to get started with Drupal.
  • Drupal resources: meet-ups, training, and more.
