Pre-conference Training Opportunities
We are pleased to announce that there will be two training opportunities on Wednesday, January 26. You will be able to jump start your Drupal experience with a full day of hands-on training from our friends at Volacci and LevelTen, which should allow you to get even more out of your Southwest Drupal Summit experience.
Please check out both options to see which is best suited for you.
Volacci's own Ben Finklea will conduct an interactive training session that will cover essential Drupal SEO tools such as:
- On-Page Optimization
- Keyword Research
- Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO)
- Essential Drupal SEO Modules
Drupal in a Day will be an overview of creating a Drupal site from start to finish. Participants will start with a blank website and, already having seen the final site, will start with adding and managing users, creating user profiles, adding custom content, and managing that content (including turning on and off comments, or setting comments to read-only). Participants will then create custom content types and look at views to display this content in various parts throughout the site, including custom blocks and list pages, such as a blogroll, the last five images added, or the latest blog posts added to the site.
- Managing content, navigation and taxonomy
- Extending Drupal through modules
- Understanding theming and modifying page layouts
- User management and permissions
