This semester's class included Drupal 7 site builders looking to learn Drupal 8 workflows and module development, a WordPress developer and a self-taught Drupal 8 developer looking to learn best practices, as well as several Drupal hobbyists looking to learn professional development techniques.

Our always-being-updated curriculum dropped support for Drupal 7 with this most recent class. The curriculum now teaches Drupal 8 best practices around using Composer to manage site codebases, Drupal Console for module development, and proper use of Drupal's settings.php and settings.local.php files. 

The next semester of Drupal Career Online begins March 26 - learn more about it.  

We're also offering our Mastering Professional Drupal Developer Workflows with Pantheon class starting February 27. This 6-week, 3 half-day per week, live online class is for those with previous Drupal development experience who are looking to learn professional Drupal 8 workflows focusing on Composer and Pantheon. In addition, there are dedicated lessons about Drupal information architecture, using Search API and Solr, and utilizing advanced Pantheon hosting features.
