Ready, set, go! Jump-start your Drupal with beginner training

Coming to DrupalCon Portland is already a great start to your Drupal journey. You can get started on accelerating your career as a Drupal developer by enrolling in one of our beginner training courses.

It’s never too late to start or to dig deeper on a topic you’ve always wanted to know more about. Whether you want to learn more about theming, site building, or modules, our beginner training will help get you on your way to the Drupal champion’s circle.

PSD to Theme

Taught by Emma Jane, a designer and trainer from Lullabot who specializes in making Drupal beautiful, this course will show you how to turn a PSD comp into a living, breathing theme in Drupal. By the end of the course, you will add phrases like rapid prototyping and grid frameworks to your vocabulary. This course sold out at DrupalCon Denver last year, so don’t wait too long before registering!

Course freebie: PDF workbook, plus one-month free course-related support via forums.

Site Building and More: A BuildAModule Mentored Training

If you’re looking for one-on-one help, learn better by taking a hands-on approach, and want to go at your own pace, this is the Drupal course for you! The training experts from BuildAModule have structured a course so flexible, you will be able to make your own path and learn what you want.

Course freebie: 4 months access to BuildAModule’s extensive video library, a course completion sticker, and one-on-one access to Drupal rockstars.

PHP for NonProgrammers

You heard that right, you can learn PHP with no prior programming experience. Veteran trainer Diana Dupuis will show you ways in which you’re already a programmer, but don’t even know it yet! This course is great for folks who are thinking about a career change, want to explore coding, or even HTML/CSS themers who want to learn PHP but have never even touched it before.

Don’t take it from us, you can let Diana explain why this course is important in this video.

Why attend training at DrupalCon?

We require training companies to provide one trainer or proctor (assistant) for every twelve students, providing attendees the kind of personal attention and hands-on instruction you won’t get for this price elsewhere.

Worried about falling behind or not being challenged by the course material? Our training courses are structured to accommodate different learning paces and our trainers are experienced with classroom management - they’ll help make the most out of your training day!
