Hello and welcome to Drupal Essential Training. I'm Tom Geller and I will be leading you through Drupal, one of the fastest growing content management systems on the web. I started using Drupal because I wanted to create promotional websites for my work that were bulletproof and easy to maintain. One such site is savemyhomebook.com, built entirely in Drupal. This course is designed for people who have a basic understanding of how the web works. No other knowledge is needed, and although you may find some chapters difficult at first, don't worry. I'll explain everything as we go.
If you have created web pages in HTML, programed in PHP or managed SQL databases you are well ahead of the game. By the end of this course you will have all the skills you need to make a fully featured attractive website. Let's get started!
