Enjoyed the learning experience and diving into Drupal 7

I have to say I have enjoyed the experience of learning Drupal. I've played with Drupal for about 8 or so years. My first drupal experience was with version 4.6 or 4.7 and and I started building a version of my website in Drupal 5. My current website is version 6, and part of the reason I wanted to take this course was because I've been wanting to learn more about Drupal and Drupal development and move more toward that in my future. I also wanted to dive into Drupal 7 to update my site. During this course Drupal 8 has come out and that will be another item to learn. 

There was some occassional difficulties with the training with mostly my stumbling over Spanish, but google's translate mostly helped with that when a sentence or word here or there didn't make it into the English translation. Fran has been great about helping the students learn. I've learned from his help directly as well as looking through the forums to gain insite into an issue or work out a problem that another student also stumbled across.

I great appreciate the time and effort that everyone at Forcontu has put in. I know I had to stop the training experience at the 2/3 mark of the course due to some family and job changes that limited my time available. But when things settled down and I picked back up, Fran was great at helping me reach the finish line and allowed me to add time to my training period to do so. 

My learning doesn't stop here. I'm hoping to continue on learning Drupal. I feel like I've barely touched the surface on some of the deeper subjects like module development and setting up a good work environment for drupal development. My website will be getting a make over soon. It's located at timnormanphoto.com  and you can check in with Linked in at linkedin.com/in/timnormanphotography or you can find me on my rarely updated twitter page at twitter.com/TimNorman.  And if you'd like to contact me directly you can get in touch through my webiste usually.

Imprescindible el curso de Back-end de D8

unalumno | Drupal 8 |
31 July, 2019

I come from Drupal 6 and 7 and in the past I programmed (among other things) with POO languages like C++ and Java. I've been a student of Forcontu before.

I recommend the course without hesitation to all those who are going to start with Drupal 8, whether they know nothing about Drupal or come from Drupal 7. Whoever thinks that knowing PHP will be able to dedicate in a short time and on his own to work with Drupal 8, is certainly wrong, unless he is a student with a lot of free time... [read more]

Bumping along through Drupal 7 training - Beginner level

emitflesti | Drupal 7 | Expert in Drupal 7
20 July, 2016

Dear Drupalistas,

My name is Nick, and I've recently made it through the Beginner level, although I understand there is an exam at  the end (?), and I haven't seen that yet.

It took forever because I did not give it top priority.  I would put it down for a while, and then pick it up again, and so on.  Not a very efficient way to do it.  Also, I have no programming experience, and generally my IT skills are limited to MS Office software.  I did build a relational database for a...

Fantastic Training Course - I learned so much!

08 July, 2016

I just want to say this has been a fanatstic training course. Before I started, I was handed a distribution (now I know its an installation profile) of teh university website by my boss and asked to become an expert in it and support it. Coming from a Joomla and custom PHP background, I didnt have a clue where to start. At that point I knew a course was needed and I signed up for Forcontu's Expert Drupal 7 course. Through completing the different levels, I have been able to fully understand... [read more]

Just finished the beginner level. This was the best online training and learning system for me.

Reading great, comprehensive books, and watching video tutorials from renowned websites--I have done it so much. They all lacked what I needed. Online hands on training, with testing and feedback plus a certification as well as real-life-useful scenarios and a curated set of modules for the beginner to learn and use. See, physical classrooms were not a choice. I am in Sri Lanka.

Fantastic Drupal Training Experience

I have had experience with Drupal 5, 6 and 7 before taking this class. I had only dabbled in starting to create a module for Drupal 6 several years ago. Though I have always wanted to start Drupal development since I started playing with it in version 5, I was always busy with something esle and wasn't sure if I could do it. 

I breezed through the first two sections of the course, the beginners and the intermediate. When I was about to the advanced section, we had a family crisis along... [read more]

Thanks to Forcontu team for giving me this oppourtunity, I am really proud of this. In whole my organization all of them are aware of this training course n its benefits. The course has been perfectly segregated that anyone with or... [read more]

A Second Drupal Site Completed

DebraG | Drupal 7 | Expert in Drupal 7 Site Building
03 December, 2015

This week I launched a Drupal site, my second since completing Forcontu's begginer and intermediate Drupal training.  The site is a Drupal Commerce site for a nature camp that uses webforms linked with Drupal Commerce for its registration process and an events calendar.  It was heavy-lifting but I'm pleased with the result, and, more importantly, so is the client.  

My Forcontu training and the foundation I received in Drupal site building served me well again.  With two soup-to-nuts... [read more]
