Digital is the way forward for all industries. As pioneers of Drupal in the Indian sub-continent, we realise better than most the value of being future-proof. Throughout our organization's existence, that's exactly what we have helped with for our clients. Now is the time to take it up on a new frontier. With open-source gaining prominence across the world, we are committed to equip the workforce of today for the needs of tomorrow. Only then can we truly think about digital as a way of life.
With that as our mission, Zyxware Technologies, in association with ICFOSS (International Centre for Free and Open Source Software) conducted a four-week training program in Drupal Site Building for fresh software engineers.
The classes were held during the weekends totalling 15 hours starting from October 17th, 2021.
The coursework included assignments and assessments to evaluate the depth of understanding of what the trainees had learned. The workshop culminates with them building a simple Drupal-9 site on their own.
Abhinand Gokhala was the primary facilitator with help from Jijo Joseph. Both work with Zyxware Technologies. Rinku Jacob, also of Zxyware Technologies, put together the Drupal material for the workshop. The classes were taught using the Moodle LMS.
On December 11th, The IT Secretary of Kerala, India, will be issuing the certificates to the candidates who have completed the workshop.
Post that, Zyxware Technologies plans to offer full time jobs to the best-performing candidates from the course. While ICFOSS has been organizing similar courses in the past, Zyxware hasn't been behind in empowering initiatives. The Freedom Walk we conducted in our initial years is still remembered by the Free & Open Source Community in Kerala. We are evolving, and constantly raising the bar with what we do.
