Learning Drupal at Drupal Gardens
Now that I’m involved, I’ve been struggling to learn Drupal. It’s interesting, a bit tougher than WordPress - but of course I learned WordPress first, so it’s tough to make a fair comparison. As I get deeper in, I’ll post some more on the challenges and differences.
The big one I found already is just the architecture / terminology. Helpfully, Jen pointed me to a beginner link http://www.drupalgardens.com/documentation/drupal-jargon-primer that was very helpful in figuring out how it’s all set up.
Also wonderful is DrupalGardens offer to let you run a hosted site for free. Even if it isn’t used for your ‘real site, it’s a great way to set up a training environment where you can try things out…
