Training + Drupal = Success!

It's that time of year again. That time when we're going to get flooded with new ideas, examples, and ways of using Drupal. Why? It's DrupalCon season of course!

DrupalCon starts next week, and as we build up to that, it is a frenzy of setting up meetings, having pre-meeting meetings, and coming up with things to present to everyone in your meetings. As part of that build-up, one of our partners has been visiting us the past couple days. Owen Lansbury from PreviousNext has been in our office talking about the past year's successes and failures, and looking forward to the coming year. Aside from scaring him with exploding transformers in our fair city, we've also been sharing with each other examples of good and bad Drupal.

One of the great examples that Owen has brought to our attention is this example of Drupal use in Government in Australia. PreviousNext is an Acquia Approved Training Partner, and has been running loads of public training courses as well as providing Acquia Training to many of their private clients. They've integrated training with almost all of their projects as they've found this leads to much greater long term success with Drupal.

And rather than read much more from me, take some time to watch the video from the DrupalDownUnder site.

I'd love to hear/see other examples of Drupal training helping ensure product success, so find me in Denver, post on here, or email.
