Acquia Client Advisor Webinar Series: ...

Acquia Client Advisor Webinar Series:

The Views module (http://drupal.org/project/views) is undoubtedly one of the most powerful tools in a Drupal site-builder’s arsenal. It empowers the user with a smart query builder which can be used to gather lists of users, comments, nodes (and revisions), files and taxonomy terms from a Drupal site - displaying them in ways only limited by the imagination of the site owner.

In this one hour webinar, you’ll learn:

• What is Views? What is the Views UI?
• Where to find the documentation for Views. Helpful Links.
• How to use Views to display simple lists of content.
• The many forms of Views, by example.
• How to leverage Views as a Data Provider.

The Acquia Client Advisor Webinar Series aims to bring to light many of the best practices hidden away in the Drupal community. Focused on practical decisions and tasks that site builders and developers will face during every project, Acquia will share best practices and recommendations based on some of the real consulting we do every day. The series is well suited for new Drupal site builders coming from other backgrounds and wondering, "How does Drupal do it?" as well as experienced Drupalists who are looking to expand their toolset of best practices.
