Getting Started with Drupal 8 - Maarten De Block
Taking your first steps in Drupal? Get to know the history of Drupal, learn to install and manage the system! Maarten De Block is an experienced trainer and author of 2 Drupal books. He helps you navigate through the basics in easy to understand language. The course is hands on, so bringing your laptop is an absolute must.

GDPR for Open Technology Companies - Exove (morning)
The course introduces and discusses the basics – and also some advanced stuff – that every company should know about the GDPR. The length of the course is three hours and it is aimed for business people and project managers.
You will learn the basic concepts of GDPR, its requirements from you and your clients, best practices and tips based on numerous GDPR audits and compliance projects, and to understand risks related to dealing with private data.
GDPR for Developers - Exove (afternoon)
European privacy regulation demands a lot of understanding of privacy. Most of the public discussion is on a high level and does not help to design and develop systems to be in compliance with GDPR. This three hour course focuses on the technical aspects of GDPR. The course is for developers only. Business people and project managers will not gain much from the course due to its technicality, unless they have a developer background.
You will learn how to approach technical challenges with a proper care of users' privacy, what are the common pain points in architectures and how to deal with them, how to properly handle data under GDPR, and how to make sure that everything is designed as privacy first.
Drupal 8 Module Development - Evolving Web
Developing Drupal modules allows you to create customized functionality for your Drupal site. While Drupal is designed to be a flexible, extensible platform, it can be challenging to figure out the best techniques for extending it and how your custom module fits into the Drupal’s overall architecture. In this training, you'll learn the process for developing a module with standard components like blocks, permissions, forms, and pages.
The course will cover the concepts behind module development, how to use Object Oriented Programming for Drupal 8, and essential Drupal developer tools. It will give you an overall understanding of how modules work and you’ll get hands-on experience developing modules from scratch.
Drupal 8 Content Migrations - Agaric
Learn to move content to Drupal 8 using the Migrate module without writing a single line of PHP. This training is aimed at site builders who will learn to combine various core and contributed modules and write YAML files to accomplish content migrations. No prior experience with the Migrate module is required. Source, process, and destination plugins will be explained to learn how each affect the migration.
By the end of the session, you will have a better understanding on how the Migrate module works and the thought process required to plan and perform migrations.
Elevate your Drupal 8 application with ReactJS - Debug Academy
We'll then build and launch a React app from start to finish. We will set it up to display data from our existing Drupal 8 website as well as to create (and POST) data back to our Drupal 8 website.
