You’ll do all your work on the Web. You’ll need:
- A computer connected to the Web
- A Web browser (Firefox, Chrome, whatever you like)
- This Web site
- A Web hosting account to run Drupal
- A Drupal reference book
For a book, try “Learning Drupal 8” by Abbott and Jones. You can get it from Packt, Amazon, or other places.
I prefer digital editions. They’re easier to carry around, and cheaper. Cheap is good. If you prefer paper, that’s fine.
You might want a mobile device, like a tablet or a smartphone, to check how your systems look on mobile browsers. That’s optional, though.
You’ll need a home on the Web to run your Drupal sites. The easiest thing to do is to sign up for an account at Reclaim Hosting. A student account is good to start with. It’s cheap, and it works. Cheap is good.
Choose a domain, like desperatepixels.com, girlgonegeek.com, janetrobertson.info, whatever you like.
You’ll need about 120 hours to complete the course. That’s a guess. Everyone is different.
