Building Websites with Drupal

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

Want to learn how to make a not so basic website? Drupal is a free and open-source Content Management System (CMS) that allows organizing, managing and publishing your content. This reliable and secure CMS is built on a PHP-based environment and powers millions of applications and websites. Learn the basics of Drupal to create a blog or a website with ease.

Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommended for working with Drupal, but will not be required for this workshop. Participants will leave with a beginner level of expertise in building websites using Drupal.

Prior to the workshop, participants should download Acquia Dev Desktop. It can be found free on Acquia. We will go through the installation process at the beginning of the workshop. 

This workshop will be available to the GW community via WebEx.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Attendance requires no reservation.
