Commerce Guys will be providing a full day of hands-on Drupal Commerce training after the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit on Monday, October 17, 2011, presented by Randy Fay. We continually revise our curriculum based on attendee feedback, and we keep it updated to reflect the latest hotness in the Drupal Commerce modules. Now that Drupal Commerce 1.0 is out, we'll be focusing on the basic steps everybody needs to build a store.
Our training starts with the basics, discussing the core architecture of the Product, Shopping Cart / Order, and Payment systems. We discuss each topic in turn and give time to allow attendees to work through a complete Drupal Commerce site build. We introduce every feature in the core modules and provide a basic introduction to Rules to get attendees started with adding discounts, conditional taxes, and automated order workflow rules. We leave time open to discuss site building and contributed module strategy at the close of the day.
Attendees do not need prior Drupal e-commerce experience to get the most out of this training, but it will be helpful for you to have an intermediate skill in Drupal site building.
The course will include at least several of these topics:
- Drupal Commerce overview, history, and concepts
- Setting up your first Drupal Commerce site
- Products and product display nodes, sitebuilding concepts
- Checkout and Payment
- Custom rules and behavior
- Stock tracking
- Importing from an external product source
- Migrating from Ubercart
