Author Tom Geller demonstrates how to create and publish a complete web site with the powerful tools in Acquia's hosted service, Drupal Gardens. The course shows how to leverage the pre-built page layouts and add custom styling using the ThemeBuilder tool; integrate rich site features, such as surveys, user ratings, and media galleries; and push content to Twitter and Facebook. The course also covers transitioning from a Drupal Gardens site to a self-hosted Drupal site. Exercise files are included with the course.
Thanks for watching "Drupal Gardens Essential Training." I hope you're as excited as I am about all you can do with Drupal Gardens, and I can't wait to see the great things you do with it. If you're still hungry for more information, here are some resources. First of all, take a look it what's on drupalgardens.com. They are continually expanding their documentation, and a lot of it is quite useful. To help you get around a little bit better within Drupal Gardens, I also recommend other lynda.com Drupal courses, in particular "Drupal Essential Training." Finally, for design help, I recommend the many, many CSS courses that you will also find on lynda.com.
In particular, I like "CSS2 Essential Training" and "CSS for Designers." CSS3 is coming out soon, so watch for that video as well. I hope this course has giving you what you need to get out and rock the web. See you there.
