I had the great pleasure of attending a week long training to gain a deeper knowledge of this content management system. The first day was all about content editors and managers to understand the typical features that they need to maintain a website through MuraCMS. On day 2 we learned how to take any theme and Muraize It and within the day long session our development servers were up and running with a new theme provided by html5up.net instead of the provided BootStrap 3 theme which currently ships with MuraCMS.
On days 3 - 5 our knowledge got deeper as we looked at various files and made code changes to perform certain tasks as it relates to our own business or industry. It was time to ask questions when specific topics came up that we were dealing with in real life. The instructor for the week was Stephen Withington who had a heart of a teacher and wanted to give us the most information possible so that we can be a great resource to BlueRiver and the community as we can answer questions when they arise.
Even though the days were long as after the day's session, it was time to grab a bite to eat for dinner then head to the room to try and put the days training to practice on numerous websites that are powered by this powerful content management system. In all, it was a wonderful experience and can not wait until the next MuraCon to gain additional informaiton.
