January: Building Websites in Drupal with Suzanne Kennedy

January 11th, 2012



So you need a website for your business, online magazine, or knitting collective. You want to get it online quickly, but you have big plans for adding new features in the future. Where do you start? One solution that has been gaining popularity among small businesses, non-profits, web designers, and large organizations is Drupal.

In this talk, Suzanne will lead you through the steps of building your first Drupal website. You’ll use a point-and-click tool that lets you set up a new site without writing code or installing any software. You’ll walk out the door with your new project underway.

What is Drupal?

Drupal is a free, open source web development platform that you can use to build all kinds of websites. It’s good for building online communities, publishing lots of content, and creating an attractive user interface. It powers over a million websites including Whitehouse.gov and Grammys.com.

What to Bring

This event will be a hands-on workshop, so if possible, bring your laptop!
