Drupal 8 is just around the corner, and the Drupal community is excited!

We want to make sure that as many people as possible can use Drupal 8. However, many new Drupal 8 users will need training, which can be expensive and difficult to find.

So, we started a Kickstarter project to create Drupal 8 training and give it away for free!

Sounds intriguing? Watch the video to find out more ...

What Drupal 8 training will we create?

The initial goal for the project is to raise $10,000. That will allow us to create 50 introductory videos for Drupal 8.

These will be given away completely free to the Drupal community.

We'll put the videos on YouTube and make the files available for anyone to download.

Hopefully, by making the video files available for download, the training will be translated into other languages, helping Drupal 8 reach the widest possible audience.

Here are the videos we plan to create:

  • Why Drupal 8? (10 videos) 
  • Drupal 7 vs Drupal 8 differences (10 videos)
  • Drupal Beginner (30 videos)
