    Update: According to Amazon the new release date for our textbook is January 25, 2017. I have adjusted the start date for Season 2 accordingly to Sunday, February 5, 2017.

    I continue to welcome any feedback about the self-study modules available at Acquia Academy.

    1 · September 22

  • Gene B.

    It appears as if Acquia has finished developing its FREE Drupal 8 training course. Details are available at Acquia Academy.

    https://community.acquiacademy.com

    You have to create a free account and that unlocks six training modules as follows:

    ~ Introduction to Drupal 8
    ~ Building a Basic Site Using Drupal 8
    ~ Extending and Managing a Drupal 8 Site
    ~ Building Websites with Drupal 8
    ~ Drupal 8 Layout and Theming
    ~ Drupal 8 Module Development

    I'm looking for feedback.

    What if we used these six training modules for a self-study group? We could do this in September and October and call this Drupal Diner, Season 2. We can rename our current Season 2 to Season 3 and continue with Season 3, as planned, once the Using Drupal (3rd edition) book arrives in late October.

    Any and all thoughts are welcome.

    I would love to have someone test-drive one of these resources and report back with comments and feedback.

    Note: Acquia has still not offered Drupal 8 tutorial training on its own site beyond the first two courses.

    According to Amazon, the publisher has pushed back the publication date of Using Drupal (3rd edition) from September 25 to October 25. As a result, I have adjusted the start date for Drupal Diner, Season 2 from October 9 to November 6.

    In the meantime, I'm looking for someone who is willing to test drive the two free Drupal 8 modules posted at Acquia Academy.

    Any feedback would be helpful. If there is value here we can use this service in lieu of a book -- once the remaining modules are posted.

    In the meantime, the article above offers a link to a free 33-page e-book, The Ultimate Guide to Drupal 8, written by one of the co-authors of the textbook we will be using. While to e-book does not appear to provide actionable exercises, it could offer a solid overview while we are waiting for the textbook to be published.

    Why does the start date keep getting moved out?

    1 · February 27

    • Gene B.

      Start date is dependent on the publication date of the book. It's been changed twice. The latest date provided by Amazon is June 25. If this date holds we can get a jump start over the summer. However, my experience is that summer start dates have been less successful; therefore, September is the next best start date.

      That said, we are considering an alternative/complementar­y plan ...
