O'Reilly Media, in conjunction with two of the authors of its forthcoming Using Drupal book, is presenting a webcast titled "Everything You Wanted to Know About Drupal but were Afraid to Ask" on Friday, December 5.Getting started with a new content management system can be a bit intimidating, and while Drupal in particular is worth the effort it takes learn the system, that doesn't make it any easier to take those first few steps. Fortunately, this webcast looks like it's going to be a simple, free way to get a good overview.

Jeff Eaton and James Walker, the presenters of the webcast, certainly have proven chops. In addition to co-authoring Using Drupal, both are deeply involved in the Drupal community and have worked with extensively with Lullabot, a Drupal-centric consulting firm. Eaton is one of the core developers of Drupal, and Walker is also a long-time contributor to various modules and components of the open source content management system.

Although the webcast is free, you do have to register. For more information on what's in store for the event, check out the webcast page on O'Reilly.com. From the page:

In this live, online event, Drupal developers Jeff Eaton and James Walker will guide newcomers through the nuts and bolts of Drupal's content management system, content management framework, and community.

The webcast is scheduled for just an hour, so it's not a huge time commitment. If your organization is considering Drupal or any other content management system, this looks to be a worthwhile investment of your time.
