Last night I had the pleasure of addressing over 2 dozen people who knew nothing about Drupal. OK. 2 of them knew a little, but by and large this crowd was getting their first look at Drupal. The Uniforum-Chicago audience was already in the right mindset since their very purpose is to advance Open System technologies.

OK, the title is a bit foreboding. "What happened in 2009 stays in 2009" I have to say that 2009 ROCKED!

Are you ready for some incredible training that takes 12hrs across 6 weeks, and when it's done, you get to keep the audio/video files of it all? Oh yah.... You get to do this ALL from your home or office! No Traveling! :-)
I run into people all the time who want to learn how to leverage the awesome power of Drupal. Often, they want to learn as much as they can AND as quickly as possible. There's NO reason why any one can't get exactly what they want out of Drupal. The abundance of resources is OVERWHELMING.
There is NO SHORTAGE of free screencasts and podcasts and tutorials and online recipes, etc. Most of them are good and many are even great! However...
