Webinar: Drupal Modules: Display Suite, Context, Views, & Panels

Learn how to use the tools the experts are using!

This webinar teaches how to utilize several of Drupal's most powerful site-building modules to build out Drupal websites.

In this webinar, Jay goes through each of these modules in-depth, using real-world project walk-throughs. This is not just a how-to on the mechanics of installing and using module 'X'. Instead we will be to answering the question "'Why should I use this module?"

We will cover the following topics:

  • The benefits of using Context over of the Drupal Admin Block UI
  • The Pro's and Con's of Panels
  • Using Display Suite to theme Content Types
  • Using Panels to theme Content Types
  • Panels v. Context v. Display Suite
  • The strategy of building Views in the most reusable way
  • Looking at real world-mockups and showing how I would build these features
  • Exporting to the Features module

This webinar is intended for intermediate to advanced level of developers that want to learn more about using Drupal's most-powerful site building tools. By the end of this session we hope to give you a better game-plan on how to build out their next site than they had before.
