NetBeans Certified Engineers

Jarda and I are at the Institut für Systemsoftware in Linz and have just completed the 1st edition of the brand new NetBeans Certified Engineer Course. The official site at SSW is here. The basic break down of the two days (yesterday and today) was as follows:
  • Introduction to NetBeans Platform
  • A First NetBeans Platform Application
  • Lookup/Architecture
  • System FileSystem
  • Nodes
  • Data Objects
  • Window System
  • Contributing to NetBeans
  • Some Ideas for Modules
  • Wrap up

And now the students need to complete an assignment (here are our suggested assignments) by Friday, 18 January 2008, in order to qualify as a 'NetBeans Certified Engineer'. Here's a pic of the whole group, inc., Jarda and me:

Let us know if there are other institutions/universities/organizations/whatever that would appreciate such a course.

    Sounds fantastic! It would be great if such a course was available at NetBeans Day(s).

    Hey, you should do this course for Sun NB engineers - I know as a somewhat n00b I sure could use it.

    Sir, I would like to know whether you offer internships for summer, and if yes then what is the criteria for attaining the same. I am highly interested in attaining one since I have a deep rooted interest in JAVA.
