NetBeans Platform Training Taking Off

Geertjan is just back from a trip around Europe giving the NetBeans Platform Training to various institutions. He was joined by Petr Suchomel for an in-house training at an ISV, then David Strupl and Dream Team member Toni Epple at the University of W├╝rzburg. He also stopped off at a JUG in Dresden on the way back to Prague.

We've been blown away by the demand for the NetBeans Platform Training. Businesses that are already building on the platform want us to come help them expand their knowledge. Universities love it because it offers a real-life application of Java concepts and skills. In fact, we've had so much interest that we just can't keep up. (We're working on a NetBeans module that clones Geertjan, Petr, Jarda, and other Platform experts, but so far it's only in Alpha.)

That's why it's so awesome to have the community come help us give these trainings. It's not just that it helps us deal with the load of training demands - it gives us a valuable insight into how the APIs are used. We have written the APIs, but few people inside Sun have used them for anything other than writing IDE modules. So having someone who has actually used the APIS for doing RCP apps makes for a much better class.

If you're interested in the course, check out the main NetBeans Platform Training page. Also check out what Toni (with pictures) and Geertjan had to say about the course.

This comes from Troy Giunipero, docs writer here in Prague for NetBeans. It's a great screencast on using EclipseLink with the Java Persistence API in a web app. Check it out.

Cool PHP Demos in NetBeans

I've been looking at the excellent work that people have been doing at the NetBeans PHP Blog and especially at the excellent screencasts and video tutorials that Petr Pisl has been putting out. He's got a Demo on using class property variables and a great demo about developing WordPress plugins with NetBeans. This along with Roman's slightly outdated but still great PHP Editor Demo gives you a nice overview of the PHP functionality that you can watch while drinking your morning coffee.
