The exact location of this training is TBD. Stay tuned to this training page and to @LarksLA on Twitter for exactly where this training will be taking place.
Previous experience using Drupal, and an understanding of nodes, comments, blocks, modules, themes, custom content types, fields and views. Introduction to Drupal by Exaltation of Larks and Drupal Site Building from Exaltation of Larks, Chapter Three or Acquia satisfy this requirement.
This Drupal Best Practices training course is definitely a must attend. The trainers were extremely knowledgeable and always happy to help and further elaborate on any given topic. I can guarantee that the discussions will keep you completely engrossed and that you will learn a lot.
Exaltation of Larks gave a compelling class managing to balance the interests and needs of both beginning Drupal designers and the more experienced programmers in the room. The conversation was lively and varied, yet the presenters kept to the course outline.
The result was an informative session where students were comfortable both asking detailed questions and sharing their solutions with other students. All in all a great value for the cost of the class. Thank you.
