The Drupal Fork: Backdrop CMS livedemo

Day: 
Saturday
Time: 
4:15p
Room: 
ECT 123

Come see Backdrop CMS in action.

This session will demonstrate some of the kinds of things you can do with Backdrop core alone. We'll walk through site-building tasks that showcase some of the differences between Backdrop and Drupal, but mostly you'll see how similar the two projects are.

We'll build a Content type, add Fields, set up Views, and more importantly, show some of the things you can do with the shiny new Layouts system. We'll demonstrate some of the features more recently included in core, and point out some of the many usability improvements as we go. At the end of the session we'll dig into the new Configuration Management system, and use it to deploy our changes from a local site to a Pantheon site.

Have questions about something specific? Bring them!
