Acquia Partner Training

Acquia's partner program is a fantastic resource for our customers as they seek to deploy the most interesting and useful Drupal projects they can.

Our partner program is also a great way for our partners to grow their business - by working with us on larger deals they can get exposure and experience with larger clients than they may work with on their own. Partners also get exclusive access to Acquia staff for advice and support. One of the ways that we help our partners build their expertise, experience, and business is through training.

What's in an API?

The Acquia Network is getting a serious shot in the arm in the opening months of 2011, and by shot in the arm, I mean something like what turned Jekyll into Hyde—except without the ragged clothes, anger and top hat. OK, maybe we’ll take the top hat.

Acquia Partner Strategy

When I joined Acquia 18 months ago, one of our top priorities was communicating our partner strategy. As a priority, it’s still right up there, an indication that, while we have made progress, we need to be more transparent, more communicative than we have been.

Drupal in Italy

I recently did an interview about Acquia and Drupal with one of the leading IT magazines in Italy, Data Manager. The interview is running in the current print edition. Below you can find an English version of the interview.

The interview was arranged by one of Acquia's Italian partners, SinerVis, as part of a larger Drupal awareness campaign that culminated last week in the Do You Drupal? event that was held in Milan. Jam (Acquia's Senior Writer) and I attended and got to meet with colleagues from SinerVis as well as with members of "Associazione Drupal Italia", the non-profit that is promoting Drupal in Italy.

The take-away from the event was that Italy is seeing an explosion of interest in Drupal. Every company and service provider we talked to spoke of strong leads from many different industry segments, the need for training more drupalists, and an excitement for hosting more DrupalCamps (and possibly even a DrupalCon).

With such an acute need for training, it was good to learn that SinerVis, one of the leading companies for Drupal training in Italy, has as many as five Drupal courses each month with 10-12 people attending each one. They even teach a class on Drupal Gardens!

The demand for training was also mirrored in the response to the "Do You Drupal?" event. On the first day there was a room full of 50+ CIO/CTOs who listened to a range of presentations and discussions about Drupal and Acquia. Jam and I delivered a 2 hour (bilingual!) introduction to Acquia. The second part of the event, on the weekend, included training workshops for students and the general public. This drew over 200 people for two sessions. Jam ended up teaching for 5 hours, introducing Drupal, Acquia, and Drupal Gardens.

Although I was only in Milano for one day I did manage to enjoy some of the cultural delights. This is me sampling some gelato with graphic designers and account managers from SinerVis. The market for Drupal has rarely looked better.


Here's the interview that appeared in Datamanager.it:

What is Drupal?

Drupal is a modern web content management system that meets the needs of organizations who value speed and flexibility in developing their web presence. It has a vast worldwide community of passionate developers who have built a library of over 5,000 add-on modules in the last nine years. These let you add nearly any feature to a Drupal site that you can imagine. Drupal's core code is also modular, enabling developers to change and maintain the system cleanly. This has made it very popular with people who want highly customized web sites and specific functionality.

This month's issue of the print magazine and website PHP User (in German) features an article on Drupal's CCK and Views module. The article was written by Meinolf Droste of MDWP, an Acquia Silver Partner.
