The Ubercart for beginners session will walk you step by step from installation to your first sale with Ubercart and Drupal.
Attendees will be provided with their own (temporary) virtual host so you can walk through the process in real time (assuming the conference network can handle the load).

Are you thinking about creating your first e-commerce site with Drupal, or maybe you just want a refresher course? This session is for you! We will provide an overview of installation, configuration, creating products, and order fulfillment with plenty of references to more detailed discussions and guides around the net.

Attendees will leave this session with the tools and information they need to create a basic Ubercart e-commerce site and all the reference tools they need to go further.

Topics will include:
Installation of Drupal and Ubercart on an empty site

Hi all,
I am a rookie. First time I will be doing this and I have no clue what to do and how to handle it.
I've started using Ubuntu last year and I love it. Now I need to learn how to build an e-commerce site in Drupal.
Hope I can be transformed into a "Drupalist"

Hi all,
I started drupal trend with ubercart last month. It is great to build a shopping cart. Now, it will be delivered soon by ubercart core function. But with lack of advance features.
The usage is complex at first.
But I don't give up.
Now, nearly to smell sweet.

Interesting. There is already a E-Commerce / Ubercart Workshop for $350. Point is I bought a ticket for the workshop awhile ago, and I just saw this. Wondering how different it will actually be. The topic list here is quite thorough it seems.

I guess the main difference is this is one hour, while the workshop is all day.


I am too late to buy my ticket for the Ubercart training. If you want to sell your Ubercart training ticket let me know.


Andy when will you post your slides? They were very good!

Were the Ubercart sessions at Drupalcon SF recorded? If yes, anyone know when the videos will be uploaded?

Thank you

Just found this on the site.

Looking forward to diving in head first for a project I'm working on.
