Drupal Global Training Day – Bristol

Drupal Global Training Day – Bristol
Event on 2013-06-14 09:30:00

Microserve are proud to announce we will be hosting a Drupal Global Traing Day. The day is aimed at people who have experience in web design and/or other CMS's, but would like to be introduced to Drupal.

Over the course of the day we will be building a site for an imaginary Restaurant, with the aim of covering most beginner sitebuilding techniques such as Content Types, Blocks, Users, Views etc. The day will be split into a number of sessions, with each session consisting of an introductory talk and tutorial on a specific area, after which the attendees will implement these features themselves.

There will be a number of Microserve employees present on the day who will be there to assist anybody who needs help. There will also be a few experienced tutorials for anyone who makes fast progress or find the sessions too easy.

For more information about the official Drupal Global Training Days see the drupal.org page.

 Pre-Requisites

Attendees will need to bring their own laptop. WI-FI access and a power outlet will be provided.

Due to time restrictions we ask everybody to turn up on the day with Acquia Dev Desktop already installed on their machine, which will provide a Drupal specific AMP development stack. Download and installation instructions for this can be found here (you will need to register as a free user to view the page).
