Craft CMS Training for Teams

by Ryan Irelan

Today I started offering private on-site training for Craft CMS. This training class is designed for small teams (up to 15 people) who need to quickly get up-to-speed on how to build websites with Craft CMS.

You have a team. They need to learn Craft and start building or maintaining your website. Mijingo’s private, in-person Craft training class can help:

  • Get your team up-to-speed quickly and efficiently, while avoiding common mistakes and pitfalls.
  • Learn the skills necessary to manage an existing website running Craft, including how to expand and build on top of it.
  • Explore the power and affordability of using Craft CMS and leave behind other tools that break your spirit (or your budget).
  • The classroom training will provide you with the tried and true methods for building websites with Craft.

The class is ideal for:

  • college or university internal design and development teams
  • agency teams looking to quickly adopt Craft CMS as a new technology
  • embedded marketing development teams who have been tasked with using Craft and need to quickly roll out new sites with it
  • internal teams who just took on maintenance responsibility for a newly built site running Craft CMS

Of course your situation may be different. Get in touch to share it with me and learn more.

Ryan at Peers Conference 2015

by Ryan Irelan

On April 30th, in Philadelphia, I’m teaching a workshop on Git version control at Peers Conference.

The workshop is called “Git: Under the Hood” and is a three-hour extravaganza that will cover intermediate-to-advanced information about how to use Git to work faster and smarter.

I’d be delighted (and you’ll learn a lot) if you attend both my workshop and the conference. You can get two half-day workshops and a two-day conference pass for only $499. Three full days of great information.

A bit about Peers, for those of you new to it:

We’re a different kind of conference. One where you’ll hear from folks you know, and some new voices you don’t. We bring together developers, designers and web business owners to share their knowledge and experiences. (And have some fun, too.) Whether you’re a pixel-pusher, an artisan or a maker, Peers is for you. Let’s do something awesome, together.

ExpressionEngine Classroom Training in Chicago

by Ryan Irelan

Next week I’ll spend three days in cold (but hopefully snowless) Chicago teaching a group of web professionals the ins and outs of building websites with ExpressionEngine. During the three-day ExpressionEngine class we’ll review the basics of EE and best practices all while building a complete site from beginning to end.

The class is broken up into about 15 modules, each one focused on a particular part of ExpressionEngine. At the end of each module there is a hands-on “lab” section of the class where students work on implementing the techniques they just learned on their own. This lab time allows the students to put to immediate use the new information and work together to solve problems. At the end of the third day we’ll have a complete sample site built in ExpressionEngine and we’ll start covering some more advanced topics, including those specific to the project the team is planning.
