Deep Dive: Getting the Most out of Drupal Core, by Acquia

Afternoon Half Day: 1pm - 5pm ET

Drupal 9 now has even more core functionality than any other previous version - entities, menus, views, taxonomy, layouts, etc. In fact, it is so useful, that you can do most of what you need without needing any extra modules!

Join us as we dive deeply into Drupal core, and reveal some of the more advanced, powerful and arcane features that are available. We will explore these features together as we look at the practical applications. We will also reserve time for a large group discussion, so bring your questions.

Drupal is the “original” low code framework. With the right information, you can do far more than most people realize.
