Learn to build a Drupal website
Hands-on classroom Drupal Template System training
WDS offers a monthly training class Building and Maintaining Websites using the Drupal Template System. Watch the Upcoming Events page of this site, or check the Employee Learning Center (University login required) for training dates. The training exercises are online and can be used for post-classroom reference (see side panel).
If you are attending the Drupal training class, you must authenticate using Princeton's Duo two-factor authentication to log in and follow the exercises. Be prepared to have your smartphone within reach.
