We'll be working with Drupal8.  The training sites we're using were built against HEAD late last week.  So they're a little bit behind the bleeding edge, and they're very much in BETA. So we're likely to hit some rough edges. If you do, report them. To do that, you'll need to have an account on Drupal.org
  
Having already arrived at Carlaw Park, here is a brief run down of what we've got. We're in a 3 bedroom apartment. There is University Wifi AP which supported eduroam in the living area.
 
  
Our kitchen has:
+
=== Go to https://www.drupal.org/user/register ===
* 4x Bowls, plates and cutlery
+
* 1x Fry Pan, 2x Saucepans
+
* Kitchen Towel and dishcloth
+
* Stove and Oven
+
* Fridge/Freezer
+
* Microwave
+
  
Living/dining area:
+
It looks like this.
* TV
+
* Lounges for up to 6 people.
+
* coffee table
+
* dining table for 4 (round and small)
+
  
In each bedroom there was:
 
* Towel and face cloth
 
* shampoo and soap
 
* Full Bedding (2x sheets, Blanket with cover and 1 pillow)
 
* Wardrobe (no hangers)
 
* Desk with chair and light (on the wall above the desk)
 
  
We immediately bought:
 
* dish washing liquid
 
* hand towel for the bathroom
 
* hand soap
 
* water bottle for cold water in the fridge
 
  
The supermarket is about 10 minutes walk away. Hope that's helpful.

Planning to build a website

We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial. We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!

Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.

  • documentation?
  • record an event?


Audience

Who will visit the website?

  • Personas
  • Demographics
  • Language / Geography

This is the stuff your website is all about. Here's some resources on creating compelling content for the web.

We'll be working with Drupal8. The training sites we're using were built against HEAD late last week. So they're a little bit behind the bleeding edge, and they're very much in BETA. So we're likely to hit some rough edges. If you do, report them. To do that, you'll need to have an account on Drupal.org
