I recently presented a session titled Case Studies in Academia: Drupal at ASU & Johns Hopkins Knowledge for Health at DrupalCon San Francisco 2010. The presentation went really well. It was great to meet with all the other universities that are using Drupal and talk about the wildly varying ways Drupal is being used in academia.
[Update] I've updated the handout to be a single page, cleaned-up a lot of the instruction, and fixed several typos. Please see the revised handout below.
An additional note: If you use the handout to assist your site upgrade process, please do me a favor and fill out a brief survey.
Attached below are the slides for the April, 2009 ASU Drupal Users Group presentation I gave on maintaining sites using a combination of CVS (to checkout Drupal core and contrib modules) and Subversion (for backing up your site's code base and integrating with locally maintained modules and themes).
Here's a quick rundown of links mentioned in the presentation:
- 5 minute overview of Subversion (video)
- Subversion Handbook
- CVS Handbook
- CVS Deploy module for Drupal
Read on after the break for code samples.
Attached below are the slides for the March, 2009 ASU Drupal Users Group presentation I gave. The presentation contains info on the following topics:
Attached below are the slides I used for both the March and April ASU Drupal Users' Group presentations I did. The first was on Content Access and Workflows and discussed the setting up effective content creation workflows with corresponding access controls. The second covered an intro Content Creation Kit (CCK) and Views. See the lists below for modules / sites referenced in the presentations.
