217: Acquia U: "Making the world a better place, one Drupalist at a time." - Amy Parker 2/2

2
Amy Parker and Jeffrey A. "jam" McGuire talk at Acquia's Boston HQ.

Part 2 of 2 - Amy Parker, the Director of Acquia University, and I sat down in Acquia's downtown Boston headquarters to talk about Acquia's technology boot camp, affectionately known as "Acquia U". In this podcast we talk about the diversity of candidate backgrounds, the candidate selection process, and go into what makes a successful Acquia "Ubie." We also talk about measuring the success of a program like this in human terms.

In part one, we went over the course and how it covers much more than Drupal. The curriculum is designed to produce people able to work in tech companies: Drupal and related technologies, agile methodologies, project management tools, trouble shooting tickets, presentation skills, and more. Listen to Part 1 to learn more.

Interview video - 14:30 min.
