DrupalEasy is proud to announce another cavalcade of training events in the coming months, both online and in-person. We have numerous opportunities for you to take advantage of our proven Drupal 8 module and theme development courses as well as our flagship technical education program for those seeking comprehensive training to become developers; the 12-week Drupal Career Online.
The primary instructor for all courses is Mike Anello (ultimike), an expert instructor and experienced, practicing Drupal developer. All DrupalEasy training is taught by only expert developers to ensure that lessons are taught accurately, reflect best practices, and draw on how real-world Drupal sites are built. Mike has been active in the Drupal community for over 10 years, is a core contributor, a Drupal Association member, and one of the leaders of the Florida Drupal Users' Group.
12-Weeks of Career Training Drupal Career Online starts on September 26, and runs every Monday and Wednesday afternoon from 1-4:30pm EDT. In addition, there is a 4-hour co-working lab, which is scheduled by the students. Class is held online using GoToMeeting, and use of webcams and microphones keeps the classes highly interactive, with instructor and student-led demos and discussions. The live online classes are supplemented with reference and lesson-guide handouts, as well as screencasts that cover each and every lesson. Each student is assisted by a community mentor to help kickstart their personal Drupal network. Our goal is to provide the most holistic, sanely-paced, best-practice-focused, long-form Drupal course in the world.

5 Options for D8 Theme and Module Development
First, if you're headed to DrupalCon Dublin, we're excited to announce that we've been selected to be one of the official training providers! We'll be offering our Introduction to Drupal 8 Module Development workshop live, and in-person. You'll learn through our stellar curriculum, and have follow-on access to all of the handouts and screencasts, with the added bonus of the synergy (yes, we just used that word) of a live classroom.
We're also offering the popular Introduction to D8 Module Development online, as well as our Introduction to D8 Theme Development workshops (https://www.drupaleasy.com/training/workshops/upcoming) multiple times in August and September. The module development workshop is 8 hours, split over two half-days, and teaches the fundamental concepts of Drupal 8 module development, including using Drupal Console as an aid for module development. Our theme development workshop is 12 hours long, split over three half-days. This super-sized workshop teaches the fundamental concepts of Drupal 8 theme development including building template files with Twig, creating custom subthemes (using Bootstrap as the base theme), and setting up a professional-level front-end development toolchain using Node.js and Gulp. Both of these courses include a live instructor, PDF handouts, and screencasts for all in-class examples.
We are committed to providing the highest quality Drupal talent development, from beginner to advanced programs; which is why our trainings work. We've taught the 12-week DCO ten times (including twice as part of Acquia U) and our 1 and 1.5 day workshops always get great reviews, just see what our graduates have to say!
