Why our Trainings are different?
1. Our trainings are for absolute beginners
This is our USP. We are totally focussed and determined to teach Drupal to anyone who can operate computers and has a passion to learn website development. When we say this we are making a bold statement here because even some developers find it difficult to learn Drupal. We want to break this myth and prove that anyone can learn Drupal. Yes anyone.
Come to us with a reason to make a website and we will teach you Drupal. We don’t expect you to have any programming background. We will use Drupal to teach you how to make an awesome website without writing a single line of code. Having some basic HTML won’t do any harm.
2. We will be with you always
Many people are not sure whether they should take a course or not because their main concern is the post training support. Many few training providers actually provide support!
Along with every training course we will provide you bonus free 5 session of one hour each of direct one to one session which you can consume within an year. We will be with you in your journey to success. We understand that you may have some difficulties when you are on your own and these free one to one sessions will ensure that you get all your doubts cleared.
Get your own Domain and Space to practice Drupal
We will give you a free Domain and Space where you can practice Drupal. It will include the following stuff.
1. Domain of your choice
2. 1 GB Space
3. 1 MySQL database
We will use this domain for practicing and we will ask you to complete the assignments that we give you on this domain. After the training is over you can keep the domain if you wish too for your business. Sexy isn’t it?
Though we provide a Domain name to you, in the training we will not build a website for you :) I hope you can understand it. The purpose of this Domain is for training only and to give you real life experience of creating your live site. When you create a site on your local machine, you may not get as excited as you would if you have a real domain, a website of your own.
So give me a call at 9811787069
These days I am working on creating training Modules for JIRA. There is one really good thing about this great tool. JIRA and Greenhopper both have an excellent documentation. So the Training Modules that I cam creating will not reinvent the wheel and there is no way I can keep it updated but I am trying to include various Use Cases in it which should be applicable to lot of people (I hope so).
The best thing about JIRA is that it can be customized the way you work and not vice versa. You don't really need to modify your process to use this tool. JIRA and its Agile features can be aligned to your way of working.
Anyways life is really busy these days. I kinda isolated from lot of exciting things happening these days but I guess that is the sacrifice you have to make to achieve bigger things. I know I close to my target and I can see my goals clearly.
On another note I was thinking of using Drupal Services API and JIRA API to connect them together. I am sure it can be done without problem but just thinking the need for doing so. Drupal is my first love and I have fallen in love with JIRA too. Connecting them together would be so cool. Ahh...btw I am also trying to get my hands dirty in Mobile Development. I am just working on an App to fetch data from Drupal site. Well I am doing lot of things at the same time :)
Just wanted to update quickly. Signing off now.
