What is Drupal?
Drupal is an open source platform (Like Teamsite or Sitecore or WordPress) for building amazing digital experiences (websites)
A customer of ours is switching many of their websites over to the Drupal platform and some of us from mtc (wko team) are being trained on how to use it.
Today, myself, along with some other internal colleagues, and a few of our external mtc employees, had an intro training to:
- Understand the Drupal terminology
- Learn what roles we have set up and what permissions they have
- Discover the basics of editing, creating, publishing pages
- Gain oversight on the development process including specifics that are new like the TDD, key confluence pages, and overview of JIRA
The next training will focus on the project management side and processes which include
- Work packages, demand
- UAT — User Acceptance Testing
- Lifecycle management and support
- Go live processes
