Drupal for Decision Makers
What big decisions face Drupal team management? How do you ensure the lasting success of your projects and people? How does Drupal help you address needs and mitigate risks?
If you are responsible for leading a Drupal team, or of a team exploring adopting Drupal for an upcoming project, join us for this in-depth exploration. Based on the popular Definitive Guide to Drupal 7, this training covers ten areas that are crucial for decision makers.
No technical experience with Drupal or web technology is required - the training is designed for a broad range of experience. The day's format centers on giving brief, broad overviews of each topic, with follow-on in small groups using hands-on examples. Authors will lead each of the small groups.
Each participant will receive an account on two best-in-breed hosting platforms, along with a specially prepared Drupal 7 distribution for use in the hands-on examples. The accounts and Drupal 7 site are theirs to continue using after the training.
Have responsibility for leading a Drupal team, or for exploring adopting Drupal for your team. No technical experience with Drupal or web technology is required - the training is designed for a broad range of experience. Be sure to bring your laptop.
