Video and notes from our "Build Day" on December 5th 2013, from 1pm - 4pm in the Gordy Room at the Wardlaw Center. This hands-on session focused on migrating from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and offered other opportunities to get familiar with the new GT theme and building/maintaining Drupal sites.
The plan is to spend the first half of the session sharing presentations on D6 to D7 migration best practices and "gotchas". We'll then take a break and discuss what advanced topics we'd like to dive into for the second half. We'll either cover these topics as a group, or break out into smaller groups depending on interests and the availability of resources.
