Crash Course in Layout, Search API & Site Management

Drupal Drop breaking through brick wall Oh Yeahhh

There are 20 training sessions offered this year during DrupalCon North America. At $500 a pop, how do you choose which one is right for you?

Digital Echidna’s Anna Mykhailova will be onsite in Minneapolis, MN on May 18th as lead instructor of the training session, Mastering layouts, search API, and site management with Drush, Composer, and Git.

Why take this training session? To find out, I asked Anna herself.

Why should a developer be interested in the training session, “Mastering layouts, search API, and site management with Drush, Composer, and Git”?

“Layout, search API, and advanced site management are the most common tasks a developer will come up against. These are items in Drupal 8 core and central to any site larger than a simple blog. These three very popular things may seem unrelated but what they have in common is that they are hard to learn on your own and yet the sort of thing that once you know where to start and what you need to do, are easy to replicate.”

What skills would an attendee hope to gain through this course?

“I put this training session together for DrupalCon and am excited to teach it because it is the sort of crash course that I wish had been available to me a few years ago. Absolutely, this training session is something that will make an intermediate developer’s life better right away. They will leave the course confident in Drupal and its popular contrib module capabilities, and become faster, better, and stronger developers.”
