Currently still inactive as the Group organizer and if you have any specific emails to share - please send them to Kerry LaRose. However, Erin from LevelTen Interactive wanted me to forward this note to the group and thought some of you may be interested in attending their 2 day Austin Training session.
My name is Erin and I am with LevelTen Interactive up here in Dallas. I wanted to let you know we are offering some Aquia Drupal Training Classes in Austin Oct 25-27th if you wanted to let your Meetup Group and other Drupal friends know here is the information which can also be found at http://leveltendesign.com/services/training
Drupal In A Day
Date: Monday, Oct 25th, 2010
Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Price: $379.00 per attendee
Drupal in a Day will be an overview of creating a Drupal site from start to finish. Participants will start with a blank website and, already having seen the final site, will start with adding and managing users, creating user profiles, adding custom content, and managing that content (including turning on and off comments, or setting comments to read-only). Participants will then create custom content types and look at
views to display this content in various parts throughout the site, including custom blocks and list pages, such as a blogroll, the last five images added, or the latest blog posts added to the site.
Because this class will be an overview and not an in-depth course, it is perfect for people who are on the fence about using Drupal or who are looking for a hands-on introduction. Fee includes lunch and materials.
Drupal for Site Builders
Date: Tuesday, Oct 26th, 2010- Wednesday, Oct 27th, 2010
Time: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Location: ExecuTrain Austin
In two days time, participants will be brought up to speed on Drupal and be ready to tackle their own project. This course is designed both for users with no Drupal experience and those who are familiar with Drupal and want to expand their knowledge and dig deeper into their sites. The course provides in-depth discussions on Drupal?s installation process and managing users, comments, and content. Participants will also review
Drupal's block system and using taxonomy to categorize their content.
On the first day, significant time will be devoted to creating new content types using the Content Construction Kit (CCK) and exploring field types, widgets, and the corresponding settings.
The second day will be dedicated entirely to CCK and Views. Views is a powerful tool used to create custom pages, blocks, and RSS feeds on your site. Participants will finish the day by creating a photo gallery using CCK, image field, and Views.
Fee includes lunch and materials.
Price: $768.00 per attendee
Thank you in advance and we hope to see some of you there!
