Training: Drupal 7 Panels Workshop

This is an all-day training session on Thursday, August 4. Check-in will begin at 8am in the entry way of the Kirkwood Regional Center at the University of Iowa. Training will be from 9am to 4pm, with a break for lunch (provided).

Panels is a popular Drupal 7 module used to create customized layouts for multiple uses. At its core it is a drag and drop content manager that lets you visually design and populate your layout without touching code.

In this one day training course, you will receive hands on instruction to uncover the many mysteries of Panels. When you leave training, you’ll be able to:

  • Navigate the Panels administrative UI

  • Create customizable, configurable layouts

  • Create ways for super users to modify layouts without touching code

  • Employ contexts and variants for greater control of content display

  • Use Views and Panels together to exploit all the possibilities for complex Drupal sites

The day is jam packed with hands-on exercises to design your own Panel’s driven site using Acquia’s Dev Desktop for a local environment. Bring your laptop so you can take full advantage of this training that typically costs $400 per person! Register now - $40
