Training PHP developers in Drupal (how we do it in Droptica)


A positive attitude is most welcome

Session details

The talent shortage is one of the biggest constraints of growth on many Drupal companies. In Droptica, instead of competing for a limited resource, we decided to train new Drupal developers.

To grow our team we created an organised training program for new hires who do not know Drupal and have to learn our tools. In this presentation, I will show the overall approach to onboarding and training new employees to get them up to speed with Drupal quickly. With a straightforward, repeatable training program we can efficiently onboard new developers giving them basic Drupal knowledge in an organised way with minimal interruption to the rest of the development team.
