Structured Content - Building Content Types in Drupal 7

This session will focus on how content types are designed and built in Drupal 7, though the fundamentals apply to Drupal 8. 

  • Why a "Content First" approach is critical when building content types
  • Field types
  • Discovering Content Patterns 
  • Additional features such as Field Collections, Media and Paragraphs
  • The Pros and Cons of the WYSIWYG
  • Introduction to Views
  • Introduction to the theme layer

This is session geared toward people just starting out with Drupal. 

NOTE: For the purposes of this session, the term 'structured content,' deals with how we break down content for entry into a CMS.  We will not cover how an entire page is structured with content.
