November 5th, 2013 Build Day Recap

On November 5th, 2013 we held our first Drupal "Build Day" where we covered the basics of the new GT theme and Drupal site building using the GT Install Profile and other tools. Video footage of the workshop is embedded below, and can also be found at: http://play.media.gatech.edu/s/gatech.edu/comm/5ab4e815-05e9-5cd0-815e-35cf954c1bb5
Note: The mic died after the first half of the workshop so unfortunately there is no sound for the second half (starting around 1:50:00.)
