CharDUG Presents Drupal 8 Training Series

CharDUG logoDuring the past few CharDUG (Charlotte Drupal User Group) meetings, I realized that we have a real need to help our existing Charlotte area Drupalers using Drupal 7 to move on to Drupal 8. There is also a huge opportunity to train those completely new to web development and Drupall. Out of some recent conversations, I have put together a training series that will span the next 6 months and become the focus for each of our monthly meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

The CharDUG Drupal 8 Training Series is a comprehensive set of training workshops to get attendees up to speed with all aspects of Drupal 8. Whether you are brand new to Drupal, focused on content management, a frontend or backend developer, or devops engineer, this series contains what you will need to utilize Drupal 8 to its potential. Attendees should bring friends, laptops, and questions. There is no need to attend all sessions, though recommended for those new to Drupal. An outline of what to expect is provided below. If you have questions or suggestions, don’t hesitate to reach out on meetup.com or @chardug.
