Drupal Global Training Days is an initiative by the Drupal Association to introduce new and beginning users to Drupal. The Drupal Association is partnering with NERDs and Last Call Media to make this happen. Once a quarter, free or low cost training events will take place around the world with one of two curriculums.
DRUPAL GLOBAL TRAINING DAY: "What is Drupal?"
This half-day workshop will be free and address the basics of Drupal, and will give an overview to those interested in evaluating or implementing Drupal. Instruction will be provided by Last Call CEO, Kelly Albrecht, and Last Call CTO, Rob Bayliss. Coffee will be provided. Brown bag lunch or snacks are encouraged. We invite you to come Learn Drupal!
As Dr. Mark Friedman explains:
"Drupal was created by geeks (and not from some existing in-use system at some content shop), it has a geek feel to it - in its community and in its use. A few geeks sat around and thought, "How can we create a very well architected modular system to do content management?" and Drupal's policy is we will change things to make the core system an even better architected system even if it breaks the non-core modules when we upgrade to a new major system...."
[However], "Drupal 7 put an emphasis on the UI [user interface] and there is a sub-community of designers that now have a significant voice in the community. "
LOCATION / REGISTRATION
It will be held at the Forbes Library in the Community room in Northampton, MA. Space is limited. Please register here to officially reserve your seat.
