The Drupal 8 Beginner Class is Here and is Free

Just over 1 month ago, on November 19th, the Drupal community released Drupal 8.

However, the practical kick-off for Drupal 8 was two weeks earlier on November 4th with the launch of Release Candidate 3. That was the first time that Drupal 8 was stable enough for end-users and for trainers like us to start creating lessons. 

Since then, Rod and Robert, our Drupal trainers, have been hard at work producing some really great Drupal 8 videos.

If you want to learn Drupal 8, here's an overview of what's available to you now and what's to come:

Here's a roadmap of what we have planned over the next few months:

  • Drupal 8 Intermediate skills
  • Drupal 8 theme development
  • Drupal 8 layout modules
  • Drupal 8 module development
  • Drupal 8 site, module and theme updates
  • Drupal 8 performance, showing how to make your site run as quickly as possible.
  • Drupal 8 security, explaining how to keep their Drupal sites safe from hackers and spammers.
  • Upgrading a site from Drupal 7 to 8 
  • Upgrading a module from Drupal 7 to 8 
  • Upgrading a theme from Drupal 7 to 8

There will be extra classes beyond that list and there are also new classes coming on Drupal 7, including the much requested Drupal 7 module development class.

All-in-all, we have a very busy roadmap for Drupal classes over the next 6 months.
