Absolute Beginners Guide to DrupalOver the last few years, we've taught over 600 training classes of many different shapes and sizes.

The Absolute Beginners Guide to Drupal is probably our most famous class. We've given this class at DrupalCons and DrupalCamps around the world.

The Absolute Beginners Guide is a one day event that gives attendees a fast and affordable introduction to Drupal.

Starting in December, we're going to take the Absolute Beginners Guide to Drupal on tour around the US.

Our aim is to visit cities that rarely, if ever, host a Drupal class. Our first three events will be in Atlanta, Nashville and Raleigh.
