Sun IDM Training No. ... Don't Know!

It has been frequent, it has been popular and it has been well received as one of the best offerings from SLS - the course on Sun Java System Identity Manager. Ask me for a count and I'd disappoint you because I've lost track of it, for IDM 345 happened aplenty in this part of the world. All the same, let me put up the batch photograph of last weeks IDM class in here:



Through a teach back session, in a matter of an hour, I got to hear from them, all that they learned in five days time. Their performance was captured and that's what you see below:


I'm certain, some day or the other, there'll be a part 2 for this story.

Sun Portal Server Training at Chennai

I just got back to Bangalore last night, after concluding a training session on Sun Java System Portal Server at Chennai. Though we do have a standard five day course on Sun Portal Server, based on an old version, the customer had an urgent need to gear up their skill sets on newer version of the product, prompting us to customize our standard program by introducing an approximate two day content on Portal Server 7.2, the most recent Sun Portal Server version, developed based on OpenPortal project.

For me, it was engaging to first discuss the fundamentals of Portal Server using the standard course materials and then use a handout, prepared locally, to discuss the installation and configuration of Portal Server 7.2 on Glassfish v2, introduce the audience to the OpenPortlet Portlet Container project as well as the PortletPack used as plugins in Nebeans 6.1 IDE and finally concluding the discussion by installing WebSynergy Milestone 3 the next generation Portal Server from Sun, released on 31st October 2008. I sincerely hope that the discussions help all folks in picture below to go out and execute their project with minimal roadblocks.



Preparing the hand out for this session was tiring, time consuming, but was enriching. I express my heart-felt gratitude to all the bloggers on Portal technology, whose blog posts came in very handy for me in completing the process just in time. I know there must be someone out there who would be wanting to get a text book installation of Portal Server 7.2 done on Glassfish and might be wandering around the world of Internet trying to fetch detailed note on the installation procedure. For all of such souls, I have uploaded an extract from my handout that details on the installation and configuration procedure of Portal 7.2 on Glassfish. If interested, download it from here.

Access Manager Training @ Hyderabad

With only another couple of days more in FY09Q1, it's safe to assume that I would have on my record an Access Manager session as the last one this quarter. It happened at Hyderabad and the folks who came in for it are in the picture below.



I would hope that very soon all of 'em would subscribe for the free OpenSSO training available at OpenSSO website, which no doubt would compliment the ILT on AM 3480 course they attended, especially to gain insights on topics like Session Failover and protecting J2EE Applications(Module 3 and Module 5 respectively in OpenSSO Training).

Before I take leave, let me also publish below their teach back sessions. I must say, they did a fantastic job in reviewing the whole course all over again on the final day.



Wishing you all a grand week ahead

It's Raining IDM 4485

As I write this note, I can hear the rain drops falling on the roof next door. It just finished raining in this part of the world where I live. It is also raining IDM 4485. Last week one batch concluded and another one starts tomorrow. Here is the photograph of the batch concluded last week:



Ask 'em, it isn't easy to survive IDM 4485 training. Deployment experience is a must.

IDM 345 is Not JAT

Exactly two days back, yet another IDM 345 training concluded here in Bangalore. Below this note, you would see my training participants. After sweating it out for five days, just about everyone in the group expressed to me that what they went through in five days were some real intriguing sessions on Sun Java System Identity Manager, quite unlike many other training programs that they previously attended. Of course, that's largely attributed to the very nature of this course, containing some exhaustive lab materials, requiring every attendee to focus hard for five continuous days, which may turn out to be taxing . Afterall, it's the first of two parts of a popular bootcamp program that existed on Sun's provisioning tool two years back or so. Know that the sequel to this course "Sun Java System Identity Manager: Deployment Fundamentals II" coded IDM 4485 is even tougher. For all the prospective IDM 345 candidates, please note that IDM 345 or its 'brother' IDM 4485 is not Just Another Training, but a marathon that's real energy sapping. But hey, it's worth it!

A Flying Visit

Alright; it's high time that I show up to tell you what I've been upto. I have enough work (I swear); and I am lazy. Together, these two factors kept me away from blogging. That's no excuse, but I couldn't resist the temptation to mention it here.

I was at Delhi last week, going through a training on Sun Java System Directory Server. It was a rather small batch. As a matter of fact, some of the folks who were nominated for this training pulled out at the last moment because of some urgent project requirements. So I ended up handling one of those small batches. You could see my DIR2337D friends below:



I must publicly apologize to one of the folks in the picture above for not being able to raise the standards of my training delivery to his expectations, as indicated by the Education Post Event Survey form. I would find out from him what went wrong this time and would certainly take corrective measures to improve upon my delivery skills. But otherwise, things went rather smoothly.

I had also taken up a T3 (Train The Trainer) program for our partner Instructors on Solaris Courses(SA 210 S10 & SA 230 S10) during the period 29/Oct/2007 - 02/Oct/2007. Wouldn't it be unfair if I don't post their snap here. So here it is:



Right then, this was a whistle-stop for me. I hope to be back soon, in a much better state of mind, and post something useful..

Evolution of Sun Java System Access Manager

Having taken so many classes in India for Sun Java System Access Manager, I also share similar sentiments with my good friend David, on hearing the news about Access Manager's entry into Gartner's Leaders Quadrant. You may want to quickly glace through this article.

Flashback

Last week, around this time, I was in a flight from Delhi to Bangalore after concludig a training program on Sun Java System Access manager. Before I flew from Delhi, I had promised my good friends that I would publish the batch photograph on my blogs. I prefer to do it late, than not doing it at all.
