The first CharDUG “Learn to Build a Website with Drupal” class was held last Saturday at Classic Graphics. The class led students through completely building a Drupal website with the following components:
- Home page
- About page
- Contact form
- Survey form
Each student built was able to take their class website project with them for review and study after the class.
I believe the class was a a success for three reasons:
- The planning group agreed that we would call it a success if we had 6-8 atendees. We had about 12 students not counting CharDUG class presenters and teaching assistants!
- Causal converstaions and class survey results indicated that everyone got something posittive out of the event.
- The class officially ended at 4pm, but no one left. We continued a greatly interactive Q&A till 4:30pm. I was impressed with the questions asked by the students.
The next CharDUG Saturday training will occur on January 12th, 2013. Join the CharDUG meetup.com group at http://www.meetup.com/charDUG and watch for details on upcoming classes and events.
