FFW has announced it has begun to offer free live public Drupal training online, in NYC and in other major markets.The free classes will focus on Drupal 8 adoption and will include Site Building classes formerly offered at $799.

Announcing the decision to offer free Drupal training, FFW CEO Nancy Stango explained the decision.

Building a robust Drupal ecosystem requires attention to all the things. We can’t just build great software. For many people formal training is the best way to learn and we need to lower obstacles to Drupal adoption everywhere. Providing this training free of charge on a regular schedule is part of our contribution back to the community.

Included in each free class listing is an appeal to support the Drupal Association by becoming a paid member.


Why is this class free?

Providing this class free of charge is one of the many ways we give back to the open source community.

FFW is highly committed to helping organizations and individuals adopt Drupal successfully. At FFW we believe great training helps create great, results-oriented websites. That's a win-win-win for you, Drupal and FFW.

Please consider supporting the Drupal Association instead. Individual membership is only $15.

And if you’re interested in Developing for Drupal 8 register for our Drupalcon LA class, ‘Introduction to Symfony/Getting Ready for Drupal 8.’ Half of all proceeds goes to support the Drupal Association.
