GlowHost, a provider of Drupal Web Hosting for quite some time, is the first sponsor of the $35K Kickstarter project with 50 educational Drupal 8 videos being released to the public this fall.
The 50 training videos to be published will be made public at no cost by OSTraining. “Many new Drupal 8 users will need training, which can be expensive and difficult to find,” said OSTraining CEO, Steve Burge. “The goal of this Kickstarter is to give everyone free access to the very best Drupal 8 training.”
The original Kickstarter goal was $10,000, which has been met. The campaign ended Friday, May 15th to coincide with the end of the largest annual Drupal event in the U.S. – DrupalCon in Los Angeles.
The client list of OSTraining, professional open source trainers, includes Apple, Pfizer, Harvard, Princeton, and many government bodies. Since 2008, OSTraining has run more than 100 training classes each year and has more than 2,600 training videos in its library. OSTraining has taught at DrupalCons in Chicago, Denver, Portland, London, Munich and Prague.
“Customer satisfaction is what sets us apart,” said Lundstrom, founder and CEO of GlowHost Web Hosting. “This opportunity was one way we can help our customers build more and better sites. We’re glad we could make that happen for them and we are excited to give back to the open source community.”
GlowHost supplies tens of thousands of customers worldwide with shared web hosting, cloud virtual dedicated server hosting, dedicated server hosting, and cloud hosting solutions.
