Getting Started with Drupal 8
Wednesday, October 2nd, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
Drupal, an open source content management system, is used to make many of the websites and applications you use every day. Drupal has great standard features, like easy content authoring, reliable performance, and excellent security.
In this live session, David Needham, Oliver Seldman, and Dan Ficker, Pantheon’s expert Drupal instructors, will walk you through the essentials of creating your first Drupal website. By the end, you’ll have an understanding of Drupal’s fundamental building blocks and a working sandbox on Pantheon that you can continue to use for as long as you like. From there, you can continue to explore at your own pace with our recommended self-serve training resources.
