LONDON--(Marketwire - Aug 24, 2011) - DrupalCon London 2011 -- Acquia, the enterprise guide to Drupal, and Lullabot, a leading Drupal strategy, training and development company, announced today that Lullabot's Drupalize.Me training is now available through Acquia Network.

The Acquia Network provides developers and site builders with answers, tools, and support for creating, extending, and maintaining extraordinary web experiences on Drupal. It will now offer access to Drupalize.Me video tutorials and training presentations as part of the Acquia Professional and Enterprise subscriptions. Basic and Developer level subscribers can try Drupalize.Me for one month for US $1.00. Drupalize.Me will also be included and listed as an online training capability at http://training.acquia.com.

Drupalize.Me is the most convenient way to learn Drupal, providing instant access to an unrivaled library of Drupal training from top-tier experts, streamed to your computer, tablet, or smart phone. More than 335 high-quality, in-depth videos are currently available, with over 140 hours of training -- and new videos are being added every month. Drupalize.Me offers practical information that both beginner and experienced developers can understand and apply immediately.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Lullabot to offer the highly regarded Drupal learning assets included with Drupalize.Me in the Acquia Network," said Peter Guagenti, Vice President, Services at Acquia. "These videos complement the already rich Acquia Library, created from individually curated answers to Drupal questions and issues -- together offering a deep and broad resource for both beginner and expert Drupal users."

"Open-source systems like Drupal are inherently collaborative, so this relationship with Acquia makes sense," said Jeff Robbins, CEO & co-founder of Lullabot. "We're glad to offer access to Drupalize.Me as part of the Acquia Network so we can empower more people with the knowledge they'll need to build amazing Drupal sites."

Acquia also announced yesterday the addition of four other new services for Acquia Network: Insight, which provides enhanced Drupal monitoring capabilities; SEO Grader, an SEO analysis tool; Blitz, which tests websites' abilities to handle high traffic loads; and Acquia Apps Market -- an API and store for third-party applications for Drupal available in Q4 2011. Apps available now through Acquia Network include site-improvement tools such as Acquia Search, Mobify for portable devices, Mollom for enhanced security, and New Relic for faster delivery.
