Moving from static design to Drupal


This session is aimed at people who come from a traditional web design background and are most comfortable writing their own HTML, CSS (maybe JavaScript) but would like to get into Drupal. If you have never worked with a content management system before, Drupal can seem daunting. In this session I hope to familiarize you with the big concepts of Drupal and make the transition easier.

My core message: if you only know HTML and CSS, don't know a word of PHP, and have never used a content management system in your life, you CAN learn Drupal.
