We're very excited to officially announce some improvements to Drupalize.me! We're confident that these new changes will improve usability and create a better experience for our members. So, without further ado, we'd like to provide you with some back story to our new approach to ‘video series’ -- delivering bite-size chunks of knowledge that can be consumed on your lunch break.

The latest sprint we completed for Drupalize.Me was called Pinkie Pie (we name all our sprints after My Little Pony™ characters—yeah, we’re fun like that). And although the name is silly, we took seriously the efforts we made to improve the Drupalize.Me experience for our members.

We’ve been listening to your feedback, and some of the changes we made in this sprint include:

We're happy to announce that we've rolled out group membership options on Drupalize.me. We even created two different approaches, so that you can pick which one works best for your group. The first option will let you buy a set number of accounts for your group (see basic pricing information in our FAQ about groups) and the second gives you unlimited accounts when accessed from a particular range of IP addresses. Here is a brief overview of the two choices and how they work.

Today we released a new video on using the Features module for Drupal 7: Deployment with Features and Drush. This is a wonderful developer tool that helps you roll out consistent features to your sites and speeds up deployment (e.g., moving work from a development server to the live site).

When I’m learning any software, the first thing I want to do is play with all the features and make my creation pretty, using all the bells and whistles. I remember the first time I played with PowerPoint…I had swirling text and zig-zagging images everywhere.

We’ve been getting a lot of suggestions for Drupalize.me video training topics lately. Boy, are you people demanding! Just kidding. :-) We really appreciate you letting us know about Drupal information you’re craving. We do read and consider your suggestions as we roadmap our future content. Some of those suggestions have already led to videos in the works right now. So thank you and keep 'em coming!

In the last few weeks you may have noticed we've been releasing a series of free videos about using the command line: Command Line Basics. There are a total of 12 videos in the series, each only between 6 to 15 minutes long, and we'll be continuing to release them over the coming weeks until we get them all out there. The entire series will be free.

Get more Drupal training for less! Drupalize.me now has new, lower prices -- as little as $35/month for an annual subscription -- so it's a great time to sign up. And, if you're one of our loyal learners (Lullabot loves you!) you will automagically be charged the new lower rate for your selected payment plan on your next billing.

Also, if you have a 6-month plan you'll be getting an additional month added to your account for FREE, and if you have an annual plan you'll receive an additional 3 months for FREE.

One request we have consistently gotten from current subscribers and people on the fence alike is the ability to signup for 6 months or a full year at a time. Well we think that's just ridiculous. Come on! Only kidding, that's actually a very reasonable request that we've been hard at work on it for a little while now. It was a tricky thing to figure out since we wanted to let current subscribers also switch OFF of their monthly account option to another plan if they wished to. We didn't want our awesome Drupalized people having to cancel...

Some of you may have noticed that, for several hours on Friday evening, the drupalize.me site was unavailable. We're very sorry! We've been working hard lately, building some nifty new features. To let you in on a little secret, we've been working on a fancy new subscription system that will allow subscribers to choose 6 month or 1 year subscriptions instead of just monthly. W00t! Many of you have requested this. We were working on this new feature when we made an error (insert sad trombone sound) that required us to temporarily take the...

Many of you have continued to ask about Drupal 7 videos on Drupalize.Me, so we thought we ought to outline for you the Drupal 7 videos that we've already rolled out since the release of Drupal 7 and also assure you that more are in the pipe and will be released very soon.
