We'd like to introduce the Fall, 2107 graduates of Drupal Career Online (DCO), DrupalEasy's exclusive 12-week, live online Drupal training program. This is our 11th graduating class and the first of our recently updated all Drupal 8 curriculum.

Resources to learn Drupal are many and certainly vary in delivery, focus and quality. When you are trying to figure out the best way to train up, considerations like schedules, learning styles, and trainer reputations play pretty heavily. You also need to look at the program and compare it to what you already know, what you need to know, and what you should know to get into practice as quickly possible. One of the biggest obstacles is often finding, and then choosing the training program(s) that are right for you, and perhaps your team. But what if you didn’t have to choose?
Over the past 6 years, we've training hundreds of people through our 12-week Drupal Career Online class, our new 6-week Mastering Professional Drupal Developer Workflows with Pantheon class, as well as our dozens of public and private trainings (literally) around the world.

We’re taking it up a couple notches this year down in Orlando for the 9th Florida DrupalCamp! We're expanding in every dimension we can find - highlighted by an opening day (Friday) of full-day workshops followed by two days (Saturday and half-day Sunday) of sessions!

When it comes to serving their constituents with effective online access, the Iowa Public Employees' Retirement System keeps getting it right.
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.
Gregg Marshall's Mastering Drupal 8 Views is one of the (I can only assume) many Drupal 8-focused books that will be released in the coming months. It is a very good deep dive into many of the hidden corners of the Views module, albeit with an interesting format.
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.
