Drupal is not just for Developers -Tim Millwoods .Net Magazine tutorial


The August edition of .Net Magazine features a detailed tutorial by UK Drupal developer Tim Millwood who works with Acquia. Guiding a novice user through the process of installing Drupal and building a job listing website, the tutorial clearly establishes how easy to use and extensible Drupal 7.x is to new comers. Detailing the benefits of features module in migrating configuration changes from development to live servers is a helpful inclusion.

Having recently had the pleasure of chatting with Brian Teeman co-founder of Joomla, it became clear that many 'outsiders' consider Drupal to require development skills in order to build sites. Of course, those familiar with the platform are clear in the knowledge that with over 7000 contributes modules Drupal is a platform where user can achieve powerful web presences with little or no development skills.
