Joomla Template OverridesOver the last 3 years, we've launched nearly 40 video classes on Drupal. 

In that time, we've covered theming, site-building and almost all of the most important modules.

However, our first class from 2011 was "Drupal 7 Beginner", and that class was starting to show its age.

In the last 3 years, much has changed about Drupal 7. Some modules have been abandoned or are far less popular. Other modules have risen to become the best options for certain tasks.

Join OSTraining today!

So, we've overhauled our Drupal class with over 30 new videos, completely updated advice and new module recommendations.

If you're new to Drupal, why not get started right now with this Drupal 7 Beginner class?
