"Build a responsive mini-site with Bootstrap"

presented by Jonathan Santos
When: Wednesday, April 13 @ 2-3pm
Where: TBA


Need a quick mini-site in a few days?
Is a full Drupal build overkill or not possible without access to a developer?
There is hope!
You can build a customized, responsive (mobile) mini-site yourself with the Bootstrap framework with very little HTML or CSS experience. Jonathan Santos from the College of Engineering will explain what the Bootstrap framework is, how to download it, and demonstrate the basic use by building an example site in just a few minutes. Note: This is a beginner level "How To" for building specialized mini-sites.
Note: UA Bootstrap and/or UA Zen will not be covered.

"Drupal 6 - Drupal 7 Content Migration"

presented by Kavitha Pattah


If you missed the presentation on January 20th, here is a summary and link to the full Drupal 6 - Drupal 7 Content Migration process by Kavitha Pattah.
Description: In order to upgrade your site from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, the content of your D6 site must be migrated to your new D7 site. We will show how we typically work through this process using a few modules such as Views, Views Export, Feeds & Feeds Import; as well as covering a few items like adjusting time and date formats, changing field values and image/file imports.
