CharDUG’s “Learn to Build a Website with Drupal” was a success!

The first CharDUG “Learn to Build a Website with Drupal” class was held last Saturday at Classic Graphics. The class led students through completely building a Drupal website with the following components:

  • Home page
  • About page
  • Contact form
  • Blog
  • Survey form

Each student built was able to take their class website project with them for review and study after the class.

I believe the class was a a success for three reasons:

  1. The planning group agreed that we would call it a success if we had 6-8 atendees. We had about 12 students not counting CharDUG class presenters and teaching assistants!
  2. Causal converstaions and class survey results indicated that everyone got something posittive out of the event.
  3. The class officially ended at 4pm, but no one left. We continued a greatly interactive Q&A till 4:30pm. I was impressed with the questions asked by the students.

I would like to thank our sponsors, Classic Graphics for providing a great training facility and WebEnabled for allowing our class to use free hosting accounts for student webites.

The next CharDUG Saturday training will occur on January 12th, 2013. Join the CharDUG group at and watch for details on upcoming classes and events.
