Java programmers in South Africa are in luck over the next few weeks, with Toni Epple present in the country, with this NetBeans Platform program:

  • 8th - 11th Feb: Stellenbosch Training, ISSI Offices

  • 10th Feb (18:00 - 20:30) - "No Slides Just Code" - Dimension Data, Cape Town

  • 15th - 18th Feb: Johanneburg Training, Jumping Bean offices

  • 17th Feb (18:30 - 21:00) - "No Slides Just Code" (together with Chris Bohme from PinkMatter) - Oracle, Johanneburg

All info about the course is here!

Several companies are involved in the above, including Jumping Bean, Oracle South Africa, IMS, Eppleton, and PinkMatter.

There's still time to sign up for all of the above events, though not much (the first starts tomorrow). Leave a comment here or contact me for more details.

Its a good news to have such presentations here in South Africa... I was wondering who exactly can attend these presentations... Students? Professionals?....

They're open to everyone, Kassem. For students, all of the above are completely free. For professionals, the trainings are for a fee, but the events on the 10th and 17th are completely free for everyone.
