Getting started with Drupal

Mauricio Dinarte (dinarcon)

This workshop is for people who want to get a solid foundation in Drupal site building. No Drupal experience is required!

With hands-on, guided exercises from start to finish, attendees will have the opportunity to get comfortable with Drupal's administration interface and build a simple, fully functional website.

You will learn how different concepts relate to each other: nodes, content types, fields, views, users, blocks, taxonomy terms, and menus. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to identify the different building blocks of a Drupal site and know where to look when modifications are needed.

Learning objectives:

- Step through the Drupal installation process
- Create nodes and understand their properties
- Create content types and add fields
- Configure fields of different types
- Create taxonomy vocabularies and terms
- Create views to display listings of content
- Create, place, and control the visibility of blocks

Setup instructions:

A working Drupal 10 installation is needed to follow the exercises. Online services like https://pantheon.io/ can be used. You can have a local installation using the Drupal quick-start command: https://www.drupal.org/docs/installing-drupal/drupal-quick-start-command Alternatively, you can use a tool like DDEV, Lando, or Docksal.
