On Thursday October 21 we branch out from our monthly 'Getting Started with Drupal Series'. This month we'll cover: Photo Galleries and Slideshows. This is an often-discussed topic in Drupal, and we've seen a lot of interest here in our group in the last few months. What we'll cover in this class:
- Image handling in Drupal
- Using Views, View Attach, Views Slideshow, and CCK to create basic image galleries
- Advanced techniques and other discussions
This is a hands-on class, so bring your laptop and follow along! (You can still benefit even without one, though.) Don't worry if you don't have Drupal installed, we have test installations for you to use, or you can sign up for a free account at http://www.webenabled...
and quickly deploy a new Drupal site. If you have any specific beginner questions you'd like to have addressed, please add them to the comments for this event and we'll try to work them in. If you know anyone who'd like to get started with Drupal, please send them the link to this page!
Recommended reading To best prepare for the Getting Started series, we recommend the book Using Drupal published by O'Reilly.
If you are at all serious about learning Drupal, please just go ahead and purchase this excellent book. Monte, Art, and AJ are just three of our group members who are happy they did! Well-written and aimed at the Drupal beginner, it takes you though the sometimes-daunting Drupal jargon and concepts with ease, and gets you comfortable with managing content and building sites step-by-step. (Although highly recommended, the reading is not required to attend the session – everyone is welcome!) About the Getting Started Series: Each month an experienced Drupaler will present a lesson suitable for Drupal beginners. We'll structure the series so each month builds on the next – if you attend each monthly Getting Started series, your Drupal skills will grow naturally and within a few months you'll be competently managing your site and your content, and on your way to adding new site sections and features.
