What is the future of courses offered by OSTraining? Some SQL? Or DOM?

Hi Cockroach

I think it's highly likely we'll offer some MySQL classes soon.

We published "MySQL Explained" which is selling well: www.amazon.com/MySQL-Explained-Your-Step-Guide/dp/151942437X/

We'll use that as the basis for some video classes.

I was vexed (as in your diagram steve) about the best way to learn views. was SQL useful in that? A very good drupal dev in the UK said that it wasn't, but I found parts of MySQL useful in communicating to people what Drupal was and wasn't. It never occurred to me that they would think that it was like Access.

Food for thought I guess. How to teach the right amount and to the right reason.

Hi Samantha,

With regards to Drupal rather than looking directly as MySQL you would be better of learning to use PHPMyAdmin www.ostraining.com/class/phpmyadmin/

You can actually generate SQL commands and look at the code for the command it is a good way to break down SQL and understand it better. You don't require it to use views and we have an excellent series on using drupal views.

If you have any Drupal specific questions feel free to post in the Drupal section.

Thanks,
Daniel
