Learn how Drupal Core can be used to build the underlying structure and content of your website without code(!). In this hands-on course, we walk you through many "Drupal-isms" so that you may unlock the power of Drupal while performing the duties of a "site builder". Those responsibilities include configuring your website, planning and implementing data architecture (using Drupal entity types), managing user roles and accounts, editing content, building pages, and installing and configuring existing and contributed modules and themes. This is your first step into working as a Drupal web developer.
