We have been involved with the Drupal Open Curriculum initiative under the Curriculum and Training group in groups.drupal.org for the last few months and have been helping build up the content for the initiative.
We are happy to inform that, we have completed the the first phase of the project on creating a standardized Drupal curriculum for Drupal companies as planned. We have compiled and published our Drupal training curriculum on the groups.drupal.org wiki under the Curriculum and Training group. We are now looking to get feedback from other Drupal companies and Drupal developers on the curriculum and the training materials. We also would like to invite developers from the community to contribute towards making this curriculum better.
