I've recently moved to London and it's been a great experience for me so far. One of my priorities is, as always, get involved with the local community, so after having participated in some sprints and delivering a talk yesterday in the Learning Drupal meetup, it's time to deliver some training for new drupalists!
Next March 15th, Commerce Guys & Code Positive have put together a Drupal training as part of the Drupal Global Training Days initiative promoted by the Drupal Association to introduce new and beginner users to Drupal.
In this session we'll do an "Introduction to Drupal", a full day training on the basics of Drupal. Attendees will leave having successfully built a Drupal site. It is ideal for those interested in exploring Drupal as a career path.
Training will be conducted at the Innovation Warehouse which kindly provides us the space and facilites from 10am to 4pm.
We have a very limited number of seats, so register here for booking yours before we run out of space!
