Great software developers aren’t born with the ability to program - it takes time, practice and education. Professional training helps people grow their skills and develop beyond what either a university education or on-the-job learning can offer. However, they are expensive and require commitment of several working days. To tackle this problem, we offer one day courses which focus on building the fundamental skills and techniques of development. By working as independent instructors, rather than a large bureaucracy we’re able to offer courses which are cheaper than the alternatives.
We speak at international software conferences, have authored bestselling Java books and have delivered many successful software applications for a range of companies. Even though we are recognised as experts within our field, we are constantly striving to learn and improve ourselves. This means that we know how challenging the learning process can be, and how important it is to apply established pedagogical principles.
If you want to learn new skills and expand your development horizons then you should think about one of our courses.
