Understanding Drupal

Drupal is an extremely flexible system. To achieve this, various layers of abstractions were built into it. A lot of concepts were created to explain these abstractions. Unfortunately, they are not always intuitive. This session aims to explain the basic building blocks for assembling a Drupal site and how they relate to each other. Many examples will be presented to help you understand Drupal and why it is so powerful.

Learning objectives:

What is a node?
What is a content type?
What are fields and why are they useful?
What is a block and what can I do with it?
What is a view?
How are users and permissions managed?
How does the taxonomy system work?
How can I create the navigation of my website?
