We're halfway through the 12-week Spring 2021 Drupal Career Online semester, with a wonderful group of nine Drupal students. We are just finishing up our spring break/independent study week, and looking forward to diving into module and theme development, followed by team workflows, the configuration system, and more before we confer their certificates at graduation on May 19th. During the first half of the course, we spent lots of time with information architecture (entities, bundles, and fields) as well as Composer, Drush, and Git topics.
Some insight on this semester's class:
- Includes students from 3 countries.
- There are one or more Windows, Mac OS, and Linux users.
- Some are brand new to Drupal, while others are Drupal content managers, and Drupal 7 developers.
- They have varying levels of previous Drupal, command line, and Git experience.
Since different students have different goals, they are all taking advantage of the wide range of resources we offer to help each student achieve their personal/professional goals. This includes office hours to help students work through course or non-course related Drupal issues, screencasts for every lesson, and one-on-one community mentors for every student.
Our next semester of Drupal Career Online begins on August 30. If you know someone who might be interested in applying, they can learn more at one of our free, 1-hour Taste-of-Drupal information webinars.
