Although we might not to believe that our Drupal has a learning curve, we must face facts. With each development project, I find ways to train my client. Sometimes I train them to be builder and sometimes just content loaders. I am sure there are many Drupal developers out there who face the same requirement with their clients. My colleague (Carla Briceno from Bixal Solutions) and I have come together to offer hands-on introductory training opportunities in the Washington DC area.
We are offering about 8 hours of project-based training. We believe that learners need to have something useful to show and use at the end of their training event. The training materials will be hosted out of http://planningdrupalsites.com, a perfect place to start learning about planning the site they will learn to build. To register for the July event, visit http://drupalintroduction.eventbrite.com. Below is a description of the Introduction to Drupal training and the audience for whom it is designed.
Course Description: The course will be centered on the development of a personal/professional demo site using strategies common to Drupal site development. You will gain experience in creating multiple-paged documents, querying the database and creating dynamically-generated pages and blocks, creating pages with customized content types, and more.
Course Audience: The course is designed for individuals who are web savvy, used to using SW applications and online interfaces, and are interested in developing sites using a content management system. Although knowledge of HTML/CSS and programming will be useful, it is not a requirement for this course.
We hope to see you there.
