What is Acquia U?

Acquia University’s Drupalist Development Program is a rigorous talent incubator program designed to grow the next generation of Drupal talent.   The 14-week paid program is comprised of classroom learning, independent projects, direct mentorship, on-the-job training, and job rotations with customer-facing teams across Professional Services and Customer Support.  Successful participants will have the opportunity to join Acquia's team of customer-facing technology professionals.  Our Dec. 2014 program is onsite in Burlington, MA through March 2015.

Where did the time go?

We're 6 weeks into the program and that means the beginning of the on-the-job training starts.  Sadly we say 'see ya' Mike Anello, who heads back to Florida for the rest of the winter, but we know we are but a Skype away.  All 10 Ubies are jumping in feet first into their rotations into Acquia Support, Acquia Ready, and Professional Services.  They'll spend the next 8 weeks working side-by-side with their Rotation mentors and learning all they can.

We Launched!

On Monday, December 5th, Acquia U launched with 10 Aspiring Drupalists coming from as far a way as Florida and Oregon, these 10 were selected from a pool of 70 from 5 different countries. Acquia U is a 14-week hands-on curriculum with a structured Drupal and Acquia Product/Services learning, 1:1 Mentoring, Personal Blogs, a rebuild of the current u.acquia.com site and eight weeks of rotations in the customer facing teams of PS, Support, and Acquia Ready. The program will culminate with a hack-a-thon that will benefit local non-profits who run their organizations on Drupal.
