A Taste of Drupal:The Dish on Crushing it as a Drupal Developer

Whether you are with an organization switching to Drupal, or you have chosen to make Drupal the focus of your web developer career, your future can be a lot of different things depending on your goals, your focus and your personality. It’s never easy shifting your career, and with Drupal, there are no official, defined developer career recipes to guide you.  

We're getting workshoppy

We’ve really been busy here at DrupalEasy updating our curriculum and adding some training programs that we think will help get people leveraging the new awesomeness of Drupal 8. After a few times out at Drupal events, and our upcoming gig at Drupal North in Montreal with Introduction to Drupal 8 Module Development on June 15, we’ve decided to go broader. We’re going new school, with online sessions of these D8 workshops in June to extend the reach beyond camps and 'cons.  

Summertime, and the hiring is (Drupal)Easy

It’s almost summer, and at DrupalEasy, that means it is almost Intern Season! Our Spring Drupal Career Online class is three-fourths of the way to graduation, and we have just three budding Drupalists who are looking for work experience through internships (the others are already spoken for!)  If you’ve got too much to do, and not enough capacity to do it, an intern might be just the ticket through our (Work Experience) WE Drupal Program.

A few weeks ago, the Florida Drupal community (and more than a few honored out-of-town guests) gathered together for our annual event.

The Need for Web Developers is Going Up - Way Up

Wind Turbine
Looking for a new, promising career? How do you feel about climbing a 212-foot (64.6m) tower next to a cable carrying 34.5kV of electricity? Perhaps you enjoy a workplace where arc flashes and fault currents are hazards to be dodged every day? If so, you're in luck because the occupation forecasted to grow the fastest in the next 10 years is that of a wind turbine service technician.

If you like the idea of getting into a truly growing field, but would rather do something a little more (ahem) down to earth, then perhaps web development (we recommend Drupal!) is the way to go. The United States Department of Labor (USDOL) recently released a short video showcasing the occupations projected to be the fastest growing for the next 10 years, and web developer is near the top of the list.
