Drupal Diner, Season 2

"Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time." NOTE: The start date is tentative.  Season 2 will be led by Senior Percolator, Leslie Glynn.  Learn more about becoming a Senior Percolator.  Season 2 will focus on the recently-released Drupal 8.  The textbook we are using will be Using Drupal (3rd edition).  The book is currently scheduled for release on December 25, 2017.  Note - We used the second edition of this book for Season 1 which focused on Drupal 7. Self-Study Group Format The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows: • Each participant obtains a copy of the same textbook:  Using Drupal (3rd edition). • Each participant commits to read one chapter per week, complete the exercises and post links to your completed work. • Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each chapter (coming soon). Each participant will receive personal feedback, as well as, a weekly group e-mail update. • Each participant who completes the book is recognized on the Self-Study Group | Wall of Accomplishment. Note: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind. Once you have access to the book, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule. You DO NOT need to live in the Boston area to participate. Invite your friends, family members and co-workers to join in the fun! How Do I Get Started? • Become a member of Boston PHP if you are not already a member.

A: We will cover nine chapters, plus two appendices in the book starting Sunday, February 5 and ending Saturday, April 22.  Refer to the Drupal Diner, Season 2 -- Master Discussion List (coming soon) for specific dates. Q: Do I have to wait until Sunday, February 5 to begin? A: No need to wait! Feel free to begin as soon as you obtain a copy of your book. Simply post a message on the Introduce Yourself: Drupal Diner, Season 2 message board (coming soon) once you receive your book so that we can gauge participation. Then, proceed at a pace that best fits your current work/life schedule. Q: Do I have to live in Boston to participate? A: Not at all. This program is virtual. We have successful graduates from many states and even have graduates from countries in Europe and Africa. Q: What if I have additional questions?
