Welcome to DrupalWelcome to Drupal
First impressions: Watch overviews and tutorials for those new to the community.

Providing support for Drupal sites large and small and users with a wide variety of experience levels means we hear all kinds of questions about Drupal. This session will cover the most common questions from users about Drupal and how it can work in your enterprise.

We'll briefly cover many topics that come up when considering or getting started with Drupal in all sorts of cases. We'll also provide pointers to where additional information about these topics can be picked up while at Drupalcon. This session won't give you all the answers but it will help orient you to what to see and do while at Drupalcon.

Some of the things we'll cover:

  • Drupal terminology
  • Creating custom content
  • What is taxonomy anyway?
  • How does one re-use content in Drupal?
  • Getting a team working together on a Drupal project
  • How can I make my site look good?
  • Parlez-vous français?

In addition to Drupal we'll touch on a few suggestions for getting the most from Drupalcon.

Experience: Beginner
Industry: education, entertainment, library, marketing, media, non-profit

Favorite part of the Getting Started session was, Heather James talks about Drupal's Social Skills. Good session, great intro on all things Drupal. Was a little hard to see the text on the slides in the overflow room though.
