The Drupal Boot Camp workshops will be hosted at Taoti's office in Dupont Circle, located at 1250 Connecticut Ave NW, Suite 610, Washington, DC 20036.  Network and enjoy a light breakfast (refreshments, bagels, and fruit) on the day of each workshop at 8:30 am. Instruction will begin promptly at 9 am and end at 11 am. Who Should Attend? These workshops are targeted very specifically towards Drupal site managers—the people tasked with posting content to the site, dealing with basic site maintenance, laying out new pages, and so on. The course curriculum assumes that you are able to create a new node and publish it to your website. The workshops are not for actual developers that want to learn how to install Drupal, code, or contribute back to the community. The goal here is to elevate the abilities and efficiency of people who are already maintaining a Drupal website.  Register Now!  Workshops are 5 each, so feel free to pick and choose the ones that make most sense for you. That said, if you buy all four up front, you'll get a 10% discount (and a Course Certificate upon completion!). Advance registration/purchase is required for entry.  Cancellation Policy Full refunds will be offered until two weeks prior to the workshop; partial refunds of 50% will be offered until 2 business days before the workshop. No refunds will be offered for cancellations within 48 hours of the workshop. Please contact us at if you need to cancel your registration. Questions?
