Acquia has built a team of people who understand Drupal and understand how to apply the Drupal framework to your needs. Our Jumpstart mentor had answers for all of our questions -- from coding tasks to deployment and strategy. He was as interested in transferring knowledge as he was in working hands on to get us closer to our goal. The Jumpstart was critical in orienting us in the Drupal world, pointing us towards the best resources and showing us how to develop for ease of upgrading, scaling and maintaining our codebase. Acquia also allowed us to work out a custom agenda tailored to our needs and level of Drupal knowledge. The jumpstart was money well spent and I would recommend highly to anyone considering it.
