(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – With Drupal 8, an open source content management system, about to be released, OSTraining is set to offer 200 training videos for free on YouTube. InMotion Hosting, based in Virginia and California, has sponsored 50 of those videos on Drupal 8 site performance and maintenance. The videos are to be posted mid-September.
“InMotion Hosting has been an excellent hosting company since 2001. No one is allowed to help InMotion customers unless they have a full month of internal training on everything to do with their hosting which makes their sponsorship a sensible fit,” said OSTraining CEO Steve Burge.
The 50 videos supported by InMotion cover: Drupal installation in different environments; Drupal core, module and theme updates, Speeding up a Drupal site; Drupal backups; Moving a Drupal site; and Keeping a Drupal site secure.
Mike Zyvoloski, InMotion business development manager, says, “Being able to support junior developers and advancing developers with the training in these Drupal 8 features will make sites more responsive and that makes customers happy.”
According to company executives, InMotion Hosting has been a 3-star CNET Certified company since 2003. They offer shared hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated servers. The company is employee owned and operated.
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 2,800 training videos in its library. OSTraining has taught at DrupalCons in Chicago, Denver, Portland, London, Munich and Prague.
