Drupal for Everyone
Redware Research Limited is delighted to present our two day course entitled 'Drupal for Everyone'.
The course has no prerequisites apart from the ability to use a computer to browse a website. We will take you through the process of building a sophisticated website in Drupal from start to finish. You will start with an empty Drupal website and will configure a sophisticated array of functionality that allows you to add your own content including images and video together with search and membership pages.
We cover the installation and configuration of a series of modules in the second day of the course which allows you to build functionality into the website without requiring any programming knowledge. We cover the process of selecting and installing modules and walk you through the journey you might follow to create your own website.
You will be astounded with the power of Drupal and we will educate you in the process we think you should follow to build a successful Drupal site. We have built a Drupal distribution of our training website which you can download amd might be a useful starting point for many organisations beginning to build a website in Drupal.
Drupal is Open Source software (written in PHP with a MySQL database) and can be customised to your exact requirements by a programmer. We cover the installation of modules in this course but not programming and you will need to hire an experienced programmer if you need to make your own custom modules.
There are plenty of themes available for free or for a fee which customise the look and feel of your website and allow you to change the colours and graphics to some extent. An experienced themer (a designer with specialist Drupal knowledge) can customise or create themes to your exact requirements so that you maintain all the functionality you have created in Drupal but with your own design. It is likely that you will need some theming done on your Drupal site if the available themes do not exactly match the look you required for your site.
Redware are committed to educating Drupal and we have a companion 'Drupal for Managers' course which takes you through the process and pitfalls of building or comissioning custom websites in Drupal so you can be empowered to successfully manage your own Drupal implementation.
