Component-based Development Workshop

With the component-based approach becoming the standard for Drupal 8 development we’re beginning to see some slick front-end environments show up in Drupal themes. The promise that talented front-enders with little Drupal knowledge can jump right in is now a reality and we at Mediacurrent are experiencing this firsthand already.

In this training, we will put into practice one of the latest trends in development: components. Building a website using a component-based approach can help make code more reusable, dramatically improve collaboration among teams, while improving flexibility and long-term maintenance of your project. We will work on building a living style guide which will become the single source of truth for markup, styles, and javascript behaviors.

Drupal 8 Crash Course (For Content-Editors, Marketers, And Project Managers)

Are you responsible for project management, content, or vendor selection and preparing to work with Drupal? This one-day training delivers all of the tools you need to get started. This training will answer the questions you didn’t even know to ask. Targeted to the non-developer, this training is perfect for individuals that need to get up and running in Drupal - fast!

Individuals that are brand new to Drupal will walk away with the confidence to work within the Drupal framework and community.

Getting started with React.js

React.js has become one of the top players in the JavaScript libraries world. Drupal has recently adopted the library to create admin interfaces. WordPress has rebuilt its WYSIWYG editor using React. This training aims to explain the basic concepts outside of the context of any particular CMS implementation. Throughout the training, a static site will be converted into a React application.

Intermediate To Advanced CSS For Practical Peoples

The goal of this training is to help people who have are familiar with CSS but find it frustrating, or want to learn more about how it works. We'll start by talking about how CSS was designed to work, what it wants to do, and then talk about the major parts of it.

We won't be focusing much on syntax, that can be googled, the goal is to help you understand it so it doesn't feel frustrating, random and buggy.
