It’s May, finally! At least where I am, the weather is warming up, the lambs are literally leaping in the fields, and the international DrupalCamp schedule is hotting up! I’m giving three workshops in Dublin as part of our major annual Drupal event. Now it's time to look ahead to the next phase of course development too.

I feel like it’s a good time to take stock. For you, this might be a time to consider taking our certification. For me, I'm reflecting on years of experience managing the program, and ready to share what we’ve learned.

I always think this is such a great deal, you get experts helping you understand a specific in-depth topic, and you also make friends you'll see for the rest of the week. There's a lot to be said for that :)

Are you a trainer yourself?

After managing the training program for several years I wanted to take a moment to reflect on just how much things have changed. We're planning Drupal 8 training, and taking stock of our experience with two previous versions of Drupal. 

Get a peek inside our Acquia training classrooms: The best kind of learning technology (April 14th). Next I’ll share insights from our experience in an upcoming webinar: How to Deliver Great Training Sessions
