She wants to help the association seize opportunities for Drupal growth through more targeted and consistent communication and marketing tools.

2. Enabling Drupal shops to grow their businesses: Suzanne is organizing the first Drupal Business Summit in Montreal this year, and believes this could be a replicable model in other regions to help Drupal shops promote the value of Drupal to businesses.

Through her work as a trainer, she has introduced Drupal to people throughout North America and Europe, and at Drupalcon Asia in Mumbai. She’s passionate about making Drupal accessible to more people, and believes that the association can facilitate initiatives to communicate the value that Drupal places on user experience and accessibility.

In addition to her ambitious vision for the Drupal Association, Suzanne brings impressive qualifications:

  2. Her talks “Building Landing Pages and Layouts for Drupal 8 ” and “Creating a Great User Experience for Content Editors”, were among the most attended and best reviewed at #Drupalcon. She keynoted DrupalCamp Montreal 2018, talking about the Drupal experience.
  3. She co-founded a successful Drupal agency which is 11 years old. She lead developers, designers, project managers, and marketers on Drupal projects big and small.

How We Can All Improve the Drupal Experience

The best part of my job is teaching Drupal. As a Drupal trainer, I get to meet a lot of Drupalers with really different backgrounds. Some are brand-new to Drupal, some have lots of experience. Listening to them tell of their Drupal journeys, both the highlights and the low points, has given me insights into the different ways people encounter Drupal and some of the most common reasons why they love it, use it and get involved in the community (or not).

Evolving Web is proud to announce that it's giving out a scholarship for our 5 Day Drupal 8 Training in Toronto in October. Everyone is welcome to apply. We encourage students, freelancers, and those looking to switch careers to attend, as well as anyone wanting to learn Drupal for a project for the social good.

If you're not in Toronto, we'll be offering scholarships in the future for trainings in other cities and online. Subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Why do you need this training?

Many businesses, higher education institutions, governments, NGOs, and communities around the world use Drupal to power their websites. Drupal is one of the most sought-after CMS technologies and there is generally a shortage of Drupal talent.

Learning Drupal can be challenging and while there are many resources online, it's useful to have a hands-on course to guide you through the process.

What will you learn in this program?

During the course, you'll learn how to build websites with Drupal from top to bottom. The class is divided into three parts:

Who should apply?

Scholarships will be given to those who demonstrate an eagerness to learn, a vision for how they will implement their Drupal skills, and a need for financial support.

It's important that applicants clearly indicate why they want to learn Drupal and what projects they're planning to use Drupal for.

Some experience with HTML, CSS, and programming is required to take the course. Please contact us if you have questions about the course requirements.

Course Details

  • Dates: October 1, 2018 - October 5, 2018 - 5 full days of intensive learning

The 10th annual DrupalCamp Montreal will be held Thursday, June 14th to Sunday, June 16th at the John Molson School of Business.

While it will be my first DrupalCamp, I am very excited to be part of the organizing committee. I am helping promote the event through social media channels and the local community. I am not a web developer but I think whether you are a Drupal developer or not, I’m sure you’ll have a lot to learn from this event.

5 reasons you should attend:

  • Meet people in the web community

  • Learn about Drupal and other web technologies

  • Learn about web strategy and design

  • Find collaborators for your next project

  • Share your knowledge and your experience with other tech lovers

Who should consider attending:

  • Site builders, developers and site admins who are new to Drupal

  • Drupal experts

  • Project managers, decision makers, content writers

  • Web marketers and designers

We Want You to Speak at DrupalCamp Montreal!

This year, we’re thinking outside the box and encouraging speakers to present on topics beyond the sphere of Drupal. So if you have content strategy techniques to show, a new JavaScript framework you want to talk about, or a CSS technique that you’re excited to use, this is your opportunity to share your ideas with the community and get experience presenting.

Any topic related to web development or Drupal is welcome. The four main tracks of the camp: site building, development, strategy & business and front-end. Sessions can be given in either French or English.

We’re also accepting session proposals until 11th of May, so if you have a great idea or know someone who does, let us know!

Learn Drupal!

The training day on June 14th includes two “What is Drupal?” training sessions (delivered by our very own Suzanne Dergacheva) where you can learn the basics of Drupal:

  • French from 9am to 12pm

  • English from 1pm at 4pm

You can see the details of training here.

Friday 15th of June and Saturday 16th of June will include sessions about Drupal, web technology, strategy, and design.

Registration is now open for the DrupalCamp Montreal 2018. You can sign up for both training or sessions.

Volunteer!

There is another way to join in the camp! If you are passionate about Drupal and web technology and you want to help make the DrupalCamp a success, you can consider volunteering at the event. To become a volunteer, you can fill out the form here.

Celebrate 10 Years of DrupalCamp Montreal

We are becoming a big community! Evolving Web was one of the web agencies that helped organize the first DrupalCamp in 2008 and approximately 50 people attended . This year, we are very proud to be sponsoring the event at the “Diamond” level and we are expecting around 200 - 250 attendees.

See you at the camp!
