    there's one more really important tool that we really need to cover,
  • 0:23
    and that is the Drupal community resources.
  • 0:26
    Being an open source project, there are thousands of people all over the world
  • 0:30
    who are working on Drupal and with Drupal every day.
  • 0:33
    And they have provided a wealth of information and opportunities
  • 0:37
    for communication and collaboration that you can take advantage of.

    I would say it is the single most important tool

Before we jump into building our first Drupal 7 site, we should also take a look at the great resources you have out there to help you on your journey. Being an open source project, Drupal has an amazing community of people who have paved this road before you. In this lesson we're going to look at the free community resources that you can use to not only find answers to your questions, but also connect with thousands of people around the world who are working in the same space you are. -- We are going to take a tour of the communtiy documentation, various Drupal forums, project issue queues, where you can glean a lot of useful information and help, Internet Relay Chat, or IRC, for real-time collaboration, and getting in touch with user groups of like-minded people around the world.
