Cairo on the NetBeans Platform!

Geertjan Wielenga
Product Manager
Today was day two of a three day NetBeans Platform Training in Cairo. The training is being held at the University of Cairo, but many of the students are from many other places—and most are either from software companies creating desktop applications or are teachers from universities and colleges. The course was organized via the Egyptian JUG, where you can find more pics (here).

Here's a pic of part of the group at the end of the 1st day:

The program of the course is as follows:

  • Day 1:
    • Getting Started with the NetBeans Platform
    • Lookup API
    • System FileSystem API
  • Day 2:
    • Window System API
    • Nodes API and Explorer & Property Sheet API
    • Visual Library API
  • Day 3:
    • Extending NetBeans IDE
    • Other Interesting NetBeans APIs
    • Ideas for Modules

I think this three day structure is much better than our normal two day course. But, maybe, sometime in the future, we could hold a workshop oriented course here, which would build on top of this one. It could take 5 days and at the end the students would have a complete application on top of the NetBeans Platform.

Interested in becoming trained to use the NetBeans Platform too? Write to users AT edu DOT netbeans DOT org. Especially schools, colleges, and universities interested in integrating this course into their standard curriculum are encouraged to invite us along: we'll come for free, depending on where you're located. NetBeans Platform trainers are found in many parts of the world, as you can read here on NetBeans Zone. And maybe you'd like to become a NetBeans Platform trainer too?

    That looks like a more balanced schedule for training someone on NB RCP :)

    Keep up the Good Work!
