were attended training, the goal of this training was to give a start to these companies on Drupal. We started the training talking about what Drupal is, what can do with and the community behind the platform.
Our primary goal was that they could learn the functional part of Drupal making practices and case studies in the laboratory so that once the course completed they make begin their first web project.
As an important part of the course we talked about the installation and configuration of Drupal, the general layout and operation of Drupal (content types, modules, translations, content, themes, taxonomies, permissions and roles), modules and case studies as the practical part the course.
As case studies, we worked with examples like: A site for orders of parts and tires of cars and a publishing site.
