Migrating from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 - training at DrupalCon
DrupalCon Chicago has announced the trainings available. We'll be teaching Upgrading from Drupal 6 to 7, Monday, March 7, 2011.
Our Acquia training team includes Joshua Brauer, Jacob Singh, and Erik Webb. These folks have extensive experience in migration from Drupal 6 and Drupal 7, as well as developing directly in Drupal 7 through the Drupal Gardens project.
Putting the *great* in Migration
The FUN part of the training is that we'll be getting our hands dirty. Participants will be doing an actual migration with a typical set up. We've planned it so we do this two times. First, we'll see how a well-behaved site should migrate in an ideal situation. Then we'll wrestle with a beast of a site for the second migration and see how to trouble shoot typical problems.
This obstacle course will give a practical understanding of development best practices which come to light when you're migrating. And we'll have some fun while doing it.
A printed migration guide will help developers manage their own migrations in the future.
Come join us! The training will cost $450 for the day.
