Many businesses exhaust countless resources on custom solutions for their business presence on the web, majority of which haven’t discovered
an open-source solution called Drupal that would allow them extended creative freedom while providing functional solutions for their needs.
In this 40-minute session, I’d like to discuss the basic business needs in several use-case scenarios that would demonstrate the flexibility of
this open-source platform. Some of the topics I’ll be covering are:

  • Basic installation and configuration
  • Theme and module installation
  • Content administration
  • The Must-Have Modules that no website can go without
  • The Nice-to-Have Modules that expand functionality for a more thorough experience
