With November right around the corner, LILRC is now accepting registrations for our upcoming hands-on training session, “Drupal Bootcamp for Beginners,” which will take place on Friday, November 1, 2013 at Farmingdale State College, Greenley Library.
This course teaches fundamental principles of the Drupal content management system and provides an overview of dynamic, database-driven web technologies. It offers fundamental knowledge of Drupal features, modules, themes and configuration. The course culminates with a case study, the creation of a Drupal site and the practical aspects of getting it online with a commercial web hosting service. It assumes no prior knowledge in these areas. Basic knowledge of common PC (Windows or Mac) skills such as copying and editing files, and Operating System navigation is required.
At the end of this course, students will:
- Have basic understanding of web technologies related to content management systems
