Join us for an Introduction to Drupal with Karyn Cassio, with a hands on demonstration on how to get up and running with Drupal. By the end of the presentation everyone will have a basic Drupal site on their local machine.
Learn why Drupal might be the right tool for your web site. We'll install an instance of Drupal on our local machines using a tool called Acquia Desktop. Everyone will want to have a laptop, preferably Mac, but can work on Windows. If you have a Linux machine you'll need to know how to start up your own website, Karyn will be able to help with downloading Drupal.

Karyn has been doing Drupal back end development for over six (6) years. She has worked on large projects, including GaiamTV.com, and Aspirations.org, as well many other sites. Karyn has been very active in the Drupal community, especially involved in the Women in Drupal group. She has been coordinating meet and greet receptions for Women in Drupal at Drupalcon’s in both the US and Europe since DrupalCon Denver in 2012. These receptions have gone a long way to helping promote women attendance at these conferences. At the past conference in June in Austin, TX we had 20% of all attendees identified as women.
