Almost anyone with a bit of Drupal knowledge can build a functional Drupal site these days, but what happens when it's time to get the last 5 years of your organization's content into that snazzy new site? More often than not, the solution involves hiring outside help or migrating content manually (ugh). Fortunately, the Drupal community has written some amazing tools to assist with content migration, and this workshop will demonstrate how to utilize them.

From there we’ll move on to dealing with remote repositories, dealing with conflicts, and working with patches.

Drupal's powerful built-in content categorization ("taxonomy") system can often provide this with relatively little effort. This course will focus on understanding how the taxonomy system works and how you can customize it for your particular site. We'll also discuss several very powerful companion modules that work with the taxonomy system to provide your users with alternate ways to find the content they're looking for.

If so, you're probably ready to learn how to extend Drupal's functionality with some custom modules. In this course, we cover the basics of writing custom functionality the "Drupal way".
