We are working on a set of free training materials for Drupal 8. To make sure we build something that others will be able to reuse we would like to get your input on the kind of trainings you would like to use to retrain your team.

With the imminent launch of Drupal 8, a lot of companies in the Drupal community will be looking for cost efficient ways to get their teams up to speed. We’ve had a few colleagues who have been exploring Drupal 8 and we’ve asked them to prepare a series of materials that summarise the most important changes.

To make it easy for teams to reuse and repurpose the training course, we are exploring a partnership with Outlearn, a training platform that makes it easy to curate and combine public training materials into a learning path, similar to a personalized playlist. To test the partnership we are working on a first series of learning paths about the most important topics a developer needs to know to be able to work in Drupal 8.

Outlearn is a really good tool for this kind of problem: Using learning paths it is really easy to glue together the most helpful materials that are already available in the community. A learning path also includes extra context from the curator that makes it greater than the sum of its parts.

To help us choose what to focus on, we need your feedback.

To be the first to hear when we release the course and to be able to make the course better fit your requirements, please take 5 minutes to fill out this survey.
