Taking the class ended up being one of my best career decisions. Prior to the course, I had no knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP, Git, or Drupal. Now, I am a Drupal Developer.

What are we teaching next?
Drupal 8 Web Development
This semester we will be teaching Drupal 8 development, theming, site maintenance, and site building. Students will learn how to be valuable members of an enterprise-level Drupal development team. Your teacher is a Technical Architect at Acquia, the company co-founded by the original creator and project lead of Drupal. He currently works on some of the largest Drupal websites in the world, putting you in great hands. You will be a great asset to any Drupal development team! Material covered includes Git, Composer, HTML, CSS, Drupal, and PHP. These skills easily transfer to other web-technologies, and will put you in a great position to be employed as a web developer.
Unfamiliar with Drupal? You're in for a treat. Drupal is an open source CMS which powers websites built for The White House, NBC, Twitter, Ebay, Harvard, Stanford, NBA, PUMA... and so many more. The website you are on right now was built by graduates of this class! To see more websites built using Drupal, visit drupal.com's showcase.
ReactJS for Drupal in a day
In this 1-day course, we give a section of our Drupal 8 website a boost by building a ReactJS App. We don't want to lose many of the benefits that Drupal core and contrib provide us with, so we will only decouple select pages and functionality using the React app we will build. We will also demonstrate how to integrate React without decoupling your Drupal website at all!
What happens when the class is over?
This course will span approximately 13 weeks. After the course, your teacher will not teach another class for 3 weeks - this is so that your teacher has time to help you get paid work, and be available for questions to make your career transition smoother. This is appealing to employers - they will hire you, and you have your newfound network as a resource for advanced questions. We pride ourselves in ensuring motivated students reach their goals.
For example: In previous semesters, teachers have helped motivated students secure even higher positions than expected by providing post-course interview advice and customized job-specific study material at no additional cost.
When and where is the next class?
Our courses are available online and in-person in the Greater Washington DC Area. We are also able to provide tailored on-site and online training for your team.

Can I afford the class?
Previous graduates' salaries increased by an average of about 40% as a direct result of taking the class. Within 1 year of beginning their new careers, some graduates made 5 times the cost of tuition in addition to their previous salaries. Can you afford not to take this class?
Unlike most other classes, we are NOT okay with taking your money at a loss to you. We do what we can to make that possible - including providing interest-free loans. Furthermore, we personally reach out to graduates who excel and hire them for paid projects soon after the class is over.
Because of this unique combination, we fully expect that you can afford this class; regardless of your current financial situation. A down payment of $1,000 is required to enroll.
Still think you are unable to afford the class, but are eager to participate? Let us know in your application; scholarships are available for a limited number of applicants.
See What Students Say...
I finished the class and kept practicing and before I knew it, I landed a new job! I've been working as a Drupal Developer for about 6 months now.
By the end of the class I had worked on multiple Drupal sites and landed an interview with Acquia, who ended up hiring me as a Drupal Developer. Highly recommend it.
How We're Different
Our personalized approach to teaching allows us to cater to individual student strengths and interests. Students are part of a real development team working on real projects. They leave the class with a working portfolio and applied experience on a software project lead by a senior developer. Previous graduates built debugacademy.com, debugsociety.com, and more live websites!
