IRC discussion about "subject areas"

Start: 
2011-09-28 15:00 - 2011-09-29 15:00 Europe/Stockholm
Organizers: 

The work on open curriculum is moving forward, and we're hoping to get some wider attention to verify (and improve) the things we have so far.

Time for the meeting was Wednesday, September 28th, 15:00 Swedish time == 2 PM London time == 8 AM US/Central time. (Sorry for the early US time. And for writing the times in an unclear way.) Place was IRC, on channel #drupal-skillmap.

Notes from the meeting

  • "Subject areas" are now renamed "skill sets", mostly due to Itangalo's firm hand on this matter.

Drupal Training in Australia

This is a page where I thoguht we could list all the people who are providing training for Drupal.

Maybe Just a brief line on;

+ how people can find you aka website link etc

Hoping this to serve as a place for new Drupal people to come to find training to help them learn more Drupal skills, also current Drupalistas to update their skill-set maybe from Drupal 6 to 7, and for companies looking to take on Drupal as their CMS and wanting to update the development team.
