Well we are 2/3rds of the way through the first "Introduction to the NetBean's Platform" training session, presented by Geertjan Wielenga at the Jumping Bean offices in Johannesburg. The class of 16 students come from various companies such as SAAB Grintek, involved in the defence sector, Fermel a supplier of mining equipment, Core Freight, a software development house and IT Platform involved in the development of specialised business systems.
So far everyone has found the course relevant and enjoyable. At the end of the course all attendees will officially be "NetBeans Platform Certified Associates". After this the next step on the certification ladder will be to become a "NetBeans Platform Certified Engineer".
Next week we will be holding the same course in Stellenbosch in Cape Town. There are places still available so if you are interested in attending its not too late to sign up.
