Drupal Commons is a pre-assembled Drupal distribution you can use to build a community site. Whether for internal collaboration or for an open community, Drupal Commons slashes the work required to stand your site up.
In this session, find out what’s inside Commons, and how to use it – and extend it.
Drupal Commons doesn’t limit you to the use cases that work out-of-the-box. You can still add modules, customize the theme, and extend Commons using normal Drupal practices to build a site that integrates Commons-style functions with your own unique needs.
This session will cover the modules in use, the content types, views, contexts, features, theme elements and all the other components that are in Drupal Commons. In addition, it will cover how the Drupal Commons community itself is organized, and how you can contribute back enhancements to Commons that you create.
Both people who want to know the basics about Commons (and what it's for, and how it works at a basic level), plus Drupal developers & themers who want to extend it.
