As the year draws to a close, I wanted to give everyone a heads-up about some of the Wakaleo training sessions already lined up for 2010.
The next big training dates are in Europe - in collaboration with Skills Matter , I will be running the Java Power Tools Bootcamp in London (February 15-19) and Paris (February 22-27) , and then in Wellington in March (March 22-26). I'm also lining up sessions for Syndey, Canberra, Melbourne, and other sites to be announced soon. This is a great workshop that covers the whole build lifecycle, including managing the build process with Maven, automated testing, automated code quality tools and all the way to Continuous Integration and automated deployment and releases using Nexus and Hudson. The course is very popular with students, and is continually being updated to keep tabs on the latest evolutions in build tools. Get in quick - before 31 December, the London workshop is going at £1500 instead of £2495!
Although it is not a silver bullet, Test Driven Development is emerging as a highly effective best practice for many development situations and environments. Related techniques such as Behaviour-Driven Development and Acceptance-Test-Driven-Development are also raising a great deal of interest. The new Testing and TDD for Java Developers course has been very popular since it's introduction in late 2009, and I am pleased to announce that we will be running it again in 2010. We're still firming up sites and session dates, but sessions are already scheduled for Wellington (March 18-19 2010) and Sydney (April 1-2), with other sessions for Canberra, Melbourne and Auckland being planned.
All these courses are designed to be practical and you are guaranteed to learn tools and techniques that will lift your game from day 1 back in the office. So what are you waiting for? Sign up today!
