Introduction to Views

Note for people in today's session: If you're interested in viewing the rest of the prepared session where we create a new View from scratch, you can view the recorded session video from Midcamp 2016 starting here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yneXWXY_Y_w&feature=youtu.be&t=40m

This session is intended to introduce the concept of Views, a powerful tool for automatically collecting and displaying lists of content according to rules you define. We will define key terms and locate them in the interface, look at examples of Views that are pre-installed in a Standard profile Drupal installation, and fiddle with them to observe how different configuration options change their behavior. We will also create an example View from scratch.

Our example will be derived from the "farmers market" guiding scenario being used by the Drupal 8 User Guide project (https://www.drupal.org/project/user_guide).
