Global Training Day: A Big Success!
In the third installment of the Drupal Global Training Day initiative as set forth by the Association’s Board, there was amazing success and growth. Drupal evangelists the world over stepped up to the plate providing free or low cost training events to their local communities.
The September 14 event included 32 participating companies expanding the world of Drupal with trainings both online and in 16 different countries to over 400 participants. Some companies held events in multiple cities, while others broke ground on introducing Drupal to their countries and communities. New regions were reached including 14 events in Asia Pacific, with 8 events in India alone!

|Training companies signed up||32|
|Individual participants||Over 500|
There were some great conversations and moments captured on Twitter. Check out #learndrupal to see the days activity. Some trainers such as Ryan Cross of CrossFunctional marketed waiving the training fee to encourage the $30 membership fee to the Drupal Association; for that we are greatly appreciative! Thanks Ryan!
