Welcome to Drupal

How do I get the most out of Drupal? How does it all work? What sessions should I go to at DrupalCon?

Providing support for Drupal sites and projects of all sizes and helping users with a wide variety of experience levels at Acquia has given us some insight into the most common questions about getting to know Drupal and how it can best work for you.

In this session, we'll touch on many subjects that come up when trying to decide whether or not to use Drupal and how to get started with it once that decision has been made. We want to give you enough information to get off to a good start, make smart choices, and get the most out of your time at DrupalCon.

We'll also provide specific pointers to other sessions and opportunities where additional information about each of our topics can be picked up while at DrupalCon.

Some of the things we'll cover:

* Drupal terminology
* What goes on under the hood
* Creating custom content
* What is taxonomy anyway?
* Re-using content in Drupal
* Getting a team working together on a Drupal project
* Themeing: How can I make my site look good?
* Parlez-vous Fran├žais? Internationalization
* and more!
