On October 10 I will be presenting "Drupal 101" at NEDcamp: http://nedcamp.org/new-england-drupal-camp-2015/sessions/drupal-101
Introduction to Drupal starting with the basics: content types, fields, taxonomy, views, themes, modules, etc. This session is not just for beginner developers but also for non-developers who just want to better understand Drupal and content management systems in general. A contact management website will be built to show how Drupal can be used to build much more than just a blog or basic website.
