Views From the Ground Up

Learn how to use the Views module

Thursday, July 16, 2015 - 9:00am to 12:30pm

Views Is one of - if not the - most important modules used in Drupal. It can also be one of the most difficult to configure and use. This session is an abbreviated version of the "Views From the Ground Up" training course delivered at each Drupalcon, and is exclusively dedicated to teaching students how to use the Views module. The full program consists of a set of real world (and useful) views that are created with an increasing level of complexity. The views functionality this session will cover will include:

1) creating pages
2) overriding system pages
3) working different display methods
4) working with multiple displays
5) filter and context filters
6) advanced context filters
7) relationships

And many others. If you want to learn how to use the most important contrib module for Drupal, this session is a must!

You should understand how to create content types, and add content. Having some basic drupal experience is pretty helpful! Most beginners can be brought up to speed fairly quickly with this. You will need a computer, internet access, and a Drupal stack running locally. I recommend and support the Acquia DevDesktop platform, but will give a 'best effort' to help with any install that comes in as long as time allows.
