STUART, FL -  As the first $5,000 investor in a $35,000 kickstarter project, Matt Lundstrom’s contribution is set to advance programmer’s abilities in Drupal 8 this Fall. Lundstrom, founder and CEO of GlowHost, has sponsored 50 training videos to be made public at no cost by OSTraining. Drupal is an open-source content management framework written in PHP and often used by government sites including WhiteHouse.gov. The videos will cover site management, security backups, updates plus an intermediate class.

OSTraining CEO Steve Burge of Sarasota, Fla. says, “many new Drupal 8 users will need training, which can be expensive and difficult to find. The goal of this Kickstarter is to give everyone free access to the very best Drupal 8 training.”

Lundstrom of Stuart, Fla, has a mindset and business plan for aggressive growth. He adds, “Customer satisfaction is what sets us apart. This opportunity was one way we can help our customers build more and better sites. We’re glad we could make that happen for them and we are excited to give back to the open source community.”

The client list of OSTraining, professional open source trainers, includes Apple, Pfizer, Harvard, Princeton, and many government bodies. Since 2008, OSTraining has run more than 100 training classes each year and has more than 2,600 training videos in its library. OSTraining has taught at DrupalCons in Chicago, Denver, Portland, London, Munich and Prague.

Founded in 2002, GlowHost is an award-winning host that supplies tens of thousands of customers worldwide with shared web hosting, cloud virtual dedicated server hosting, dedicated server hosting, and cloud hosting solutions. GlowHost is an accredited member of the BBB with an A+ rating.

The original kickstarter goal was $10,000, which has been met. The campaign ends Friday, May 15 to coincide with the end of the largest annual Drupal event in the U.S. - DrupalCon in Los Angeles.
