As part of an ongoing effort to support the development of the ICT industry in Nunavut, NBDC organized a free introductory workshop on web development with the Drupal content management system. NBDC partnered with Pirivik and Web Networks to deliver the 2 day, in-person workshop March 25-26, 2013 to 11 participants. Here's what one of the participants had to say:
“I have always felt like web development was out of my reach and yet within the span of the workshop I was able to go from having no knowledge of web development whatsoever to creating my first website, which is now live today!... I cannot express how thankful I am for this workshop as it has given me tools and knowledge I had always assumed were for others... But now I know that web development can truly be for anyone! Since then, I have been able to promote my site, as well as take a much more active role in adding and editing content on the site of the organization for which I work.”
The course material is available online.
We think it was a great success and hope to organize more workshops. If you have a workshop idea, let us know.
