= CentOS and Fedora Birds of a Feather =
+
  
The Fedora Project is the community behind Fedora Linux, the leading edge distribution that is the upstream for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). The CentOS Project produces a stable, predictable, and manageable platform built on the RHEL sources, and works with upstream communities (such as Project Atomic and Xen) to help them layer their work on a stable platform. The last year has been extremely busy for both projects, and 2015 is going to be just as exciting.
 
  
If you're using or contributing to CentOS and/or Fedora - or just interested in learning more about them - join us for this BoF to discuss the latest developments, plans for 2015, tips/tricks and best practices, or areas where CentOS and Fedora can improve.

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!

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.

Planning Tools

There's a range of tools out there to help you plan your site. (know any others? Add them here.)

Join the community

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


Go to https://www.drupal.org/user/register

It looks like this.

But we can also add menus of our own

Views

Views. The single most popular module for previous versions of Drupal, is now in core. It's a powerhouse. But complex. We'll start simple. Views is a list maker, a query generator. It lets you slice and dice your content in all sorts of wonderful ways.
