Absolute Beginner's Guide to Site Building — for Designers*

Friday, 2:15pm - 3:15pm
Getting Started
Experience Level: 

You're a graphic designer. You've built many static websites over the years. You've dabbled a bit in an "easier" CMS. You probably know html, css, and a little js. But now you're ready to build sites with Drupal.

Where do you even begin?
How can you take what you already know and make it work for you?

I was in this position just a few years ago. I fumbled around a bit, but soon figured out how to wrap my head around it. I'd now like to help those with similar backgrounds shave a few months off their learning curve.
