This class will teach you how to build websites using Drupal 8, as part of an enterprise team. Drupal is used to power many of the largest websites in the world, and Drupal developers are extremely in-demand. Employers are regularly surprised and impressed with our graduates' knowledge and ability to jump right into a dev team.

Topics covered include:

  • Git
  • Composer
  • HTML5
  • CSS
  • SASS
  • Drupal Site Building
  • PHP
  • Twig
  • Module Patching

Drupal is an open source content management system (CMS) which powers small to large websites and applications. Drupal is used to build small to advanced websites, and to power the backend of mobile apps. It is extremely flexible, and can be used to build virtually any website or web application you can imagine.

The White House, NBC, Twitter, Ebay, Weather.com, BBC, Harvard, Stanford, Warner Music Group, U.S. Department of Justice, Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Government of Australia, NBA, MLS, NFL, PUMA, GE, Whole Foods, 2016 Summer Olympics, NCAA... should I go on? These are a few of the more recognizable names that use Drupal to power some or all of their websites. It's not only the big guys, however - even the website you are on right now was built (by graduates of this class) using Drupal!
