The Drupal 8 Advanced Bundle packages our three advanced Drupal 8 classes together at a special reduced price. The bundle includes:
PHP Bootcamp for Drupal 8 (4 weeks)
Learn the PHP and basic programming skills necessary for Drupal module and theme development. Read the course description for full details.
Drupal 8 Module Development (4 weeks)
In this course, you will learn to build your own custom modules for Drupal. Covering the Drupal 8 core API, you'll discover the most commonly-used Drupal hooks, services, and functions and find out how to use Drupal's documentation to learn about the rest. You'll develop several modules step-by-step, while following best practices to ensure maintainability and interoperability with other modules.. Read the course description for full details.
Drupal 8 Theme Development (4 weeks)
In this course, you will learn to build your own custom themes for Drupal. The class covers Drupal 8 theming, using the Twig templating language, and responsive design with the Omega base theme. During this course, you'll develop themes step-by-step, while following best practices to ensure maintainability and interoperability with Drupal module updates. Read the course description for full details.
Purchasing the Bundle
To purchase the bundle, just choose the class sessions you would like from the box and click Add to Cart. PHP Bootcamp is a pre-requisite for the Module and Theme development classes, so please make sure to schedule it before either of those courses. The Module Development and Theme Development classes are independent of one another, and the order in which you take those doesn't matter.

What People are Saying
Take a look at what students are saying about classes in this bundle.
“Learning Drupal technology is like climbing a tall range of mountains. Without a good guide, you're probably going to tumble down in the valleys below. Wayne helps you reach those peaks by organising his courses in a logical order and presenting the material through practical scenarios.”
“This class was by far the most beneficial Drupal 8 learning experience. I am very excited to be able to use the new concepts that were taught in my future development projects.”
Since now Drupal 8 is out and starting to be widely used, I didn't want to repeat the same error, and I preferred to take a structured course about what Drupal actually offers concerning built-in features. With this course I discovered the routing system, the links system, the benefits of placeholders, the cache system, how to correctly use hook functions, the differences among the several standard file names, and many other tips.
Last but not least, I really have to say that the teacher Wayne is great: He explains everything in a very detailed way, with a simple language, and slowly.”
“This has been the best on-line Drupal training course that I have done so far. My personal highlight were the lessons on dependency injection, probably the best explanation of this important concept that I have seen.”
“Wayne is a great teacher. He sounds passionate about Drupal and doesn't limit his courses to a single method of doing things. He always teaches every possible way. I really enjoyed the course and one important detail is that you get access to the videos forever which is nice if you want to go back to something.”
“I am self-taught and have been a senior web developer for many years. These classes jump right to the pertinent information and stays on point.
My experience has taught me that online video courses will be only partially useful, and even then it takes considerable effort to find the proper information to fill in the gaps of my existing knowledge. I'm pleased to say that this course was quite the opposite - Each video (well...maybe not the Intro to PHP for ûber-beginners video) was full of useful information. Multiple times during the course, after being exposed to some new tidbit of Drupally-goodness, I would pause the video, go into my real-life-Drupal-8 development codebase, and implement the technique I just learned. I'm not talking copy/pasting sample code into a contrived learning environment, I'm talking writing my own code to solve a real-world issue.
Considering the reasonable cost of these videos, I can say they're totally worth your time and money. They certainly were worth it for me.”
Try this course for a week, and if you don't agree that it's the best way to learn Drupal, we'll refund the full price. No questions asked.
