Drupal Powered E-commerce

22 August 2010

Join the Drupal e-commerce professionals in Copenhagen for an entire day of hands-on training covering everything you need to start selling on Drupal. We will introduce to two e-commerce systems for Drupal, Ubercart for Drupal 6 and Drupal Commerce in development for Drupal 7. We will then spend a majority of the day working through building a community swag store together on Drupal 6 with Ubercart. By the end of the day, students will be equipped with the knowledge to build robust, easily administered e-commerce sites. Attendees should understand the basics of Drupal site building and module installation beforehand, and exposure to other major contributed modules like Views and CCK is a plus.

The format of the training will be a series of lessons interspersed with practice sessions.

Commerce Guys trainers will be on hand to guide students through the learning exercises and answer related questions.

The agenda includes the following lessons:
