Late in 2015, just before the release of Drupal 8, a company called OSTraining approached Acquia for help in funding a Kickstarter project.
The goal of the Kickstarter was to make sure that as many people as possible can use Drupal 8. Their method was to publish free, high-quality Drupal 8 training on YouTube.
Acquia decided to sponsor the The Drupal 8 Beginner Class, which consists of 60 video tutorials.
This training project was more successful than we ever imagined. Over 1 million people have watched it. The class now gets around 20,000 views every week.
The popularity of both classes shows the enthusiasm there is for Drupal 8.
If you’re curious about Drupal 8, or know someone who is, head over and check out The Drupal 8 Beginner Class.
