Drupal 8 Explained Book Description

Drupal 8 is an amazingly powerful web content management system. But many newcomers find it confusing, and most Drupal books are just too complicated to help. If you want to spend less time struggling with complex instructions, and more time building sites that make you proud, this is the book for you!

Stephen Burge has taught thousands of beginners - and thousands more who've experimented with Drupal but haven't mastered it yet. Nobody knows more about guiding Drupal users up the learning curve - from confusion to results!

Burge and the OSTraining team make learning fun. Like their online training, you learn by following enjoyable, step-by-step instructions. OSTraining books are written in plain English and are supported by plenty of online documentation and videos.

Drupal 8 Explained requires absolutely no experience with Drupal, content management, website construction, programming, scripting, or even HTML. Please note: This book is 100% aimed at Drupal beginners. Drupal 8 Explained contains very little code, and that is absolutely deliberate. If you want to learn how to create themes or code modules, there are other books for you.
