When you attend our training, you will get a free copy of the best-selling Drupal book, “Drupal 8 Explained”.
Drupal 8 Explained has been the best-selling and best-reviewed Drupal book since its launch. If you are a Drupal beginner, this book will teach you everything you need to know. You follow clear step-by-step instructions to build real Drupal sites. This book was inspired by our live training and was written by OST founder, Steve Burge.

We give you access to these videos as soon as you buy your ticket. This allows you to start learning Drupal now, even before the class.
After the class, you can keep watching the videos and keep learning.
