Two sessions of the Khoros Virtual Developer Training are open for enrollment! These training sessions are an efficient way to empower your Developer teams to maintain and evolve your community. Attendees are led by expert Khoros Developers who have years of expertise working on our platform. In this shared classroom environment attendees also get to meet and hear from their peers at other Customers to learn more about how they are making the most of the Khoros Community platform.
The week-long training includes five consecutive days of two hours of instruction per day in a virtual classroom setting that will include live training, code reviews from previous days assignments, and office hours to support new assignments.

This is interesting! I really need to learn more about API, Authentication and Endpoints to go the next level in skills needed to maintain our platform. Februari 2022 is the soonest my team is able to plan in my absence.

What is the fee for these training sessions?
please share here or PM me @NatanyaA.

@NatanyaA I'd like to eventually get to the point where I can take this class so I can have a better knowledge as the community manager. We don't have the benefit of having developer sitting around being able to do development for my community. Where do you suggest I get training on freemarker and css and javasript training so that I can fulfill the minimum requirements? 


Listeing to this discussion. we have a similar situation...

@MarkAtTruth There are a lot of resources for CSS and JavaScript available given how prevalent these languages are. I'd suggest starting with a resource like Udemy or another reviewed bootcamp. It's a little old school I realize but there is a wide collection of books on both topics available at your favorite bookseller. I'm personally a big fan of anything from the O'Reilly publishing group.

We have some suggestions for FreeMarker learning posted here:

Be sure to check out the guides to utilizing FreeMarker in Khoros Communities referenced in the above link.

@Hoekstra_VFZ Apologies for the delay in responding. The holidays got the better of me it would appear. Please synch up with your account team to discuss fees for the training. We have a couple of options depending on how your contract is structured.
