When I walk along with two others, from at least one I will be able to learn.
Drupal development as a career is usually also a commitment to constant learning through ongoing professional development. Whether you make it a point to read blog posts or watch screencasts, sign up for some type of live-instructor training, or partake in co-working and meet-ups, on-going learning is a critical piece to being a professional Drupal developer.
As trainers, feeders of the Drupal Talent pipeline, and researchers of strategies to attract and build the numbers and excellence of Drupal talent across the world, we spend a lot of time finding and training people in the ways of Drupal. Through resources, Mike Anello's many sessions and trainings at Camps and Cons, and through our flagship Drupal Career Technical Education program, we pursue our passion to teach more people Drupal.
Spoiler alert! If you haven't seen “The Last Jedi” yet, this blog post includes what can be considered a minor spoiler. I've seen the movie a few times now (I saw the original Star Wars movie when I was 7 years old, and I've been hooked ever since), and I've been able to fully indoctrinate at least one of my kids in my love for the series.
The following is a guest blog post by Brian Coffelt.
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.
Miriam Webster defines effort as conscious exertion of power: hard work
If you want to learn Drupal, you need to put forth some effort, and if you want to do it properly, get ready to exert some power for months, not days.
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!
The 9th annual Florida DrupalCamp (FLDC) will be held February 17,18, and 19th, 2017 in Orlando, Florida; DrupalEasy is proud to be a sponsor.
We’re super excited to announce Megan Sanicki as our second featured speaker. Megan is the Executive Director of the Drupal Association (DA), and will talk about all the things that the DA does to promote and serve Drupal.
