    Making the Switch: Drupal 4 Developers

    To follow up on our post about the Security Training we're running in Denver, we now introduce you to our second training course - "Making the Switch: For Experienced Developers Moving to Drupal" taught by Jeff Beeman, Joshua Brauer, and Chris Porter.

    Check out the (very amateur) video below with Jeff Beeman and Erik Webb. Jeff is leading this years course, and Erik taught this course with Jeff in London & Chicago. They have some fun doing a "fireside" chat and covering the outline of the course. Watch for Jeff's watch... ;)

    The making of a Ubie - Inside Acquia training

    As you may know, Acquia has been growing quite fast. Since I joined the company in the fall of 2008, we have gone from about 25 employees to around 200 today. It has been a fantastic ride for everyone, and we see no signs of slowing. The tough part of growth for us has been keeping up with the demand for talented Drupalists. From what I understand, Acquia isn't unique in this requirement.

    Drupal Gardens adds content access control, image tools, bulk operations, and more!

    This is the 21st in our series of Drupal Gardens 'What's New' posts, and we think this one is especially worth celebrating. Need to restrict valuable content on your site to only privileged users? Want to crop, rotate or resize uploaded images in your posts? Wish you could click to perform bulk delete or other operations on lists of users, content or media? Long for better control over how comments are displayed on your site? With this release, we've got you covered.

    OpenSaaS Brings New Freedom to the Cloud

    The rise of SaaS, software delivered as a service, is having an enormously disruptive impact on the software industry. Forrester Research estimates that spending on SaaS technology will double by 2013, representing 16% of all software spend. Gartner Research estimates that SaaS software spend is growing at 18%, compounded annually, and will reach $23B by 2015.

    Site building is for coders too.

    New to Drupal, but you're an experienced coder? Drop the API, and step away from the command line.

    In one of our most popular webinars of 2011 about developing with Drupal, developer Camilla Jensen (naxoc) admitted that- even with her experience with J2EE and PHP development, much of her work on a typical Drupal project starts with *research*.

    Drupal is content first, and that's good

    As a Drupal trainer, I am very interested in the results of usability testing because it often chimes with the same observations we make of new users as they learn Drupal. One finding in particular strikes a chord for those who are new to theming:

    COD 2012 Update: New co-maintainer, Drupal 7, & Acquia

    2011 was an amazing year for COD, the Drupal-based solution for fully featured conference websites.

    - There have been several amazing sites added to the COD showcase
    - A new co-maintainer
    - Solid community commitment to helping with the update to Drupal 7
    - And increasingly, more involvement from Acquia

    You can read more about these developments -- and Acquia's increasingly active role with COD -- in the 2012 update on UseCOD.com.

    Distributions Summit in San Diego

    The year is winding down and it was such a great year for Drupal! This was my first year with Acquia however it was not my first with Drupal. I worked with Drupal at OpenProj back in 2007 – it was a very active site with downloads exceeding 2 million. It has been a new and wonderful experience getting involved in the Drupal community through Acquia. In 2012, I look forward to actively contributing to the community and making an impact with Drupal Distributions. With that, my wish list for Distros in 2012 is quite long!
