Creating websites is hard. It takes a lot of code to build a website, but a lot of it is similar from site to site. Clients rarely ever want the same things, but when we are building content-driven sites we have a secret weapon: using a content management system (CMS). With a CMS we can reuse the same code over and over again for different projects. And if the site is simple enough, we might not even have to do any coding at all!
Drupal is a special CMS. It is easy enough to pick it up and be productive in it quickly, and it is flexible enough to handle all the customizations your client demands. In this course, Derek Jensen is going to show you how to go from no knowledge of Drupal whatsoever to building a fully functional, production-ready website to call your own. Follow along as Derek shows you all the tricks of setting up a Drupal site with custom content and views. By the end of the course, you'll have built a full-featured, Drupal-powered site for hosting information about developer conferences!
