It was a pretty good event. It was the first time I took my new hint template on the road for real. It worked and some of the students seem to have already been using it, judging from some of the comments to the mailing list we created to give them direct access to us. We covered all the typical NetBeans Platform subjects, from Lookup to the NetBeans window system to the NetBeans FileSystem, nodes, data objects, and so on. The students now need to do some work and turn in their assignments, which we will judge and give them feedback on.
Here's the page that's been set up especially for this particular course. If you'd like to let us know that we should come and visit your school/institution/club/company/JUG/city/pub to deliver this course, drop a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
