We'll cover fundamental Drupal concepts and terminology and give you the hands-on experience you need to get comfortable using Drupal. 

Whether you're a developer using Drupal for the first time, a content editor looking for an introduction to Drupal administration, or a site builder wanting to know how to structure a new Drupal website, this course will get you started on the right foot.
