Global Training Days

Drupal Global Training Days is an exciting initiative from the Drupal community to introduce new and beginning users to Drupal. Trainers from companies and local groups around the world make newcomers to the Drupal community feel inspired and empowered to start great work.

Once a quarter, free or low-cost training events take place around the globe. It's also a great opportunity for companies to showcase their Drupal services and the impact they've had in their local communities.

Follow Global Training Days with #DrupalGTD on Twitter

Upcoming Event Dates

2017

June 2 — 3
September 8 — 9
December 1 — 2

One day, or two.
Help grow the community you love.

Teach Drupal

Introducing Drupal

Each training day is its own workshop. Attendees get helpful information for evaluating Drupal as a framework and as a career path. They also learn enough of the basics to leave a workshop having successfully built a Drupal site.

Benefits and Requirements

The Drupal community would love for you to participate. To make a training day great for everyone involved, and to celebrate our open source spirit, some participation terms:

  • Your event should be as low cost as possible for attendees (preferably free)
  • Officially sign up by adding your training to the wiki
  • Add your event to the calendar on groups.drupal.org (and your event will appear on drupical.com too)
  • Market your training day in your local area and region
  • Create a registration page for attendees

Here's what tools are made available to you:

  • "I'm Training" badge for your company's or organization's site
  • The Drupal Association will promote Global Training Days broadly, on drupal.org, in the Association's newsletter and on its site, Drupal Groups, Drupal Planet, Twitter, and Facebook
  • More TBD as the GTD Working Group meets to determine what resources are needed
