Are you at BadCamp and new to Drupal? There will be tons of great sessions this weekend but I told my Beginning Drupal 8 class that I would send them a list of Drupal Beginner oriented sessions. If you are new to Drupal or just want a refresher on some basic Drupal concepts you might find these sessions useful.
  • UNDERSTANDING DRUPAL - This is for you, you are new. You need to take the time to understand these basic concepts.
  • Views for Beginners (in Drupal 8) - Arguably the most important contrib module in Drupal 7, in Drupal 8 Views is in core.
  • Introduction to Content Types - The slides for this presentation from socketwench look awesome! She will be covering the concept of Structured Content and how it is implemented in Drupal. Drupal's structured content abilities through it's entity and field system is what separates it from other systems.
  • Your First Drupal 8 Module - tedbow? Who is this guy? If you are interested in writing custom code for Drupal 8 or just learning how modules work, this session is for you.
  • R.E.A.D: Four Steps for Selecting The Right Modules - I have seen this session before and it is very good! From the description - "One of the most crucial and important steps in building any Drupal project is how to determine which modules to use." - Yes, yes, and yes!

Of course these are only recommendations and there are so many sessions to choose from. Hope to see you there!
