CHENNAI, INDIA--(Marketwire - July 16, 2008) - Photon Infotech, a next generation Internet consulting firm creating innovative e-business solutions with SOA, Open Source, and Web 2.0 technologies, today announced the opening of the Photon Drupal Training Center, a new facility that will leverage and expand Photon's experience and expertise with Drupal, an open-source PHP-driven Content Management System. With a goal of certifying 200 new Drupal experts a year, Photon will have the industry's largest and best trained army of Drupal consultants in the world.

A strong advocate and contributor to the Open Source movement, Photon has been involved with Drupal from its start and recently finished its 40th project based on Drupal.
