The University web site is more prominent and expected to have more functionality than ever before. How can a small team of developers stay on top of the latest trends in web application development and design while also maintaining the many bits and pieces that comprise a university web portal? One possible solution to this problem is the very popular content management system called Drupal. In this session we''ll cover: * What is Drupal? * How does it work? * Who uses Drupal (in Tennessee and around the world)? * What are the benefits of this system? * How do we get started using it?
