Building Sites with Drupal | Drupal Training for Beginners

Use Drupal to build scalable websites as you create data structure, blocks, dynamic pages, and more!

Overview

Our Drupal Course for Beginners can show you how to build the underlying structure and content of your website without code(!). In this hands-on course, we walk you through many "Drupal-isms" so that you may unlock the power of Drupal while performing the duties of a "site builder". Those responsibilities include configuring your website, planning and implementing data architecture (using Drupal entity types), managing user roles and accounts, editing content, building pages, and installing and configuring existing and contributed modules and themes. This is your first step into working as a Drupal web developer.

This class is designed for:

  • Developers at any level. Yes, ANY level!
  • Anyone considering a career change into the web development field
  • People interested in learning how to manage more than just content on their Drupal websites

  • I am very glad that I could get a job in Drupal

    At Debug Academy, Drupal front end training course is curated with real time use cases, regular exercises and home assignments to train an individual with minimal experience in computer programming. I was fortunate to be part of this training to fulfil my dream in software development field. While I sincerely worked on the tasks assigned to me and I got complete support from Ashraf and team to complete the tasks with clear understanding. The beauty of this training is that I was trained to be part of the real time projects.

  • "I think the way learning in this course is laid out is really well done"

    The structure and order of the course made a lot of sense, it was very logical, and paced in an appropriate way. As soon as I got curious about another topic, it came up later in a lesson or in the next lecture. I think the way learning in this course is laid out is really well done, and now I'm going to have a hard time following the structure of other courses if it doesn't feel just as logical. Well done. Thank you.

  • "Being able to also work on a real project was amazing"

    I enjoyed the formal "lecture" and then the code along division of each class. Being able to also work on a real project was amazing and being part of real workflow using Git was especially helpful. Also, having Ashraf available for Zoom calls was quite nice in addition to the Slack chatroom.” Ashraf's a great instructor, he explains things in a way that make it seem more approachable.

  • "I really liked the support I received when taking the course!"

    I took the course and with the skills I gained, I was able to get placed on a high-profile project "The Cheesecake Factory"! && many other client projects right after. I must say the tools I learned here at Debug Academy are very similar tools that the teams I work with on client projects use as well which is pretty amazing! I highly recommend this course!!
