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

In the first part of this session session, we'll be building a Drupal module from scratch. Really, from scratch. Virtually no previous experience with Drupal coding is required. So, if you've been wanting to add some custom functionality to a Drupal site, earn some karma points by contributing a kick-ass module, or simply make a sight modification to a form, this session is for you. We'll take a look at some of the differences between Drupal 6 and 7 implementations, so you will gain skills that will be useful for existing and new sites.

The second part of this session will be driven by the trainees. I'll ask a few questions to get a feel for what pressing needs people have for their modules, and we'll cover as much ground as time will allow to get as many people either a working solution or headed in the right direction.

Seems like an interesting session! Will I be able to follow along at all even if I don't really know PHP? (I can figure out basic if-then-else-statements when looking at them, but not much else.)

I think you'd be able to follow along for much of the presentation, even if at a purely conceptual level of what's going on in the code. It could be useful to you :) !
