With hands-on training you'll get kick started in learning Drupal!
What is Drupal?
Drupal (pronounced drew-pull) is web development software written in a popular scripting language - PHP. Drupal has both a point and click interface to allow tech-savvy people to put together websites with no programming experience; and Drupal also has an API and framework for programmers to develop unique applications. And it's all free- it's opensource.
Consider a career in Drupal
Drupal has become wildly popular over the last 5 years, and there are many jobs available for people from a variety of backgrounds. This should be great news in an economy where students are concerned about finding meaningful, exciting careers with growth potential. Because of this, we're working hard to grow Drupal talent.
Drupal users include government agencies (such as Whitehouse.gov, US House of Reps), media organizations (AlJazeera, The Nation, The Economist) , not-for-profits (Amnesty International, World Economic Forum) and many companies who are realizing the benefits of open source, see more at http://buytaert.net/tag/drupal-sites.
