Throughout the course, students will follow along with the video and complete hands-on practice assignments to build simple custom applications on a Drupal website. We will provide an online development environment in which to follow along with the lesson videos and complete the assignments.
The weekly live sessions will be conducted online using Zoom. During the sessions, the instructor will answer questions about the lessons and will help troubleshoot any issues with the assignment. In addition to the live sessions, you will have access to an online forum to discuss assignments with other students and ask the instructor questions during the week.
