OSTraining to Release Free Drupal 8 Beginner Training in July [June 25, 2015]
As one of the fastest growing occupations, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer programmers are about to get a professional development tool at no cost. Open Source Training LLC (OSTraining) is set to launch a 14-part online beginner course for Drupal 8 via YouTube in July.
OSTraining launched a campaign earlier this year to fund freely available Drupal 8 training modules. Acquia sponsored the development of the beginner’s training.
The beginner track is slated for 50 videos to cover an introduction to Drupal, installation of Drupal 8 on Acquia Cloud Free, taxonomy, modules, themes, managing people and reports, and site management. Acquia Cloud Free is a free Drupal development platform offering one-click installation of Drupal 8.
“Acquia is making it easy for developers to discover all the advantages that Drupal 8 offers,” said Renée Bochman, Acquia vice president of customer experience. “Acquia provides a cloud platform and full suite of workflow tools for Drupal 8. OSTraining’s on-demand course is designed to help developers get started fast and succeed.”
OSTraining CEO Steve Burge of Sarasota, Fla. says, “many new Drupal 8 users will need training, which can be expensive and difficult to find. The goal is to give everyone free access to the very best Drupal 8 training.”
