Learn Fields, Views and Panels: Our Drupal Intermediate Class

| OSTraining News

Drupal intermediate

If you want to learn Drupal, be ambitious and aim high.  Try building the most famous Drupal website in the world, WhiteHouse.gov.

This is just what you'll be able to do in our Drupal Intermediate class, which launches today in online video form.

In our Drupal Intermediate class, you'll learn how Drupal sites get built using the Fields, Views and the Panels modules. We go in depth with all three, and once you've finished learning about these three, you'll be ready to tackle building the WhiteHouse.gov website.

Overview of the Drupal Intermediate Class

How does the Intermediate class work? It's based around two major projects. First, we tackle Fields and show you how to create unique and interesting content in Drupal. The example we use is IMDB.com and by the time this part of the class is over you'll know how to reproduce a page like this:

Then we'll show you how to make your data useful to visitors by using the Views module. We'll create several different views, building up to the example below where we sort and organize over 250 different movies:

In the third part of the class we use the Panels module and show you how advanced layouts can be built in Drupal without using any code.

Finally, we take on a second project and put everything together and replicate the most famous Drupal site in the world: http://whitehouse.gov. Using everything that you learned in our Drupal Beginner and Intermediate classes we'll show you how to build the front page of the White House website.
