Welcome to Drupal! I am so glad you’re here. In this session, I will introduce a powerful system for building and maintaining websites called Drupal. Drupal is a Content Management System or CMS for short.

- A quick history of Drupal
- Who Uses Drupal?
- Benefits of Drupal
- Creating a basic Drupal 8 site using the Drupal browser interface.

At the end of this session, participants will have a basic understanding of Drupal and then we work together to create a new Drupal site that demonstrates the principals, practice site building, learn how to add and organize content on a Drupal site using Basic Pages, Articles, Blocks, and Custom Content Types.

In this session, there is no coding involved. We will focus on site building with Drupal Interface.
There may be a little bit of working with command lines to set up a new Drupal project.
Bring your laptop and let’s dive into the Drupal’s world.
