This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm in the south-east US and was looking for classroom training on "something".
Having been a Java developer for very many years, and my company not real interested in my learning another language, I'd probably not get away with going for one of Dick's Scala classes (although I think a functional language would be cool).
So I'm figuring I could learn more about being the version control master for our new SubVersion install (currently on CVS and would need to migrate). We've had some contractors that have been running the show there. My history with version control here, and various other gigs, has always been to just do what "they" (the version control masters) say. I know it's not rocket science, but if there was a classroom course geared toward industry (i.e. a few days...not a college course), that would be awesome. Even better if they taught it using the Eclipse plug-in, which is the way it would be used here.
Another option, again classroom training, would be to become an Eclipse Java/JavaEE ninja. I know what I need to know, but there's probably a lot on the table. I would want a course that assumed you knew the basics, and took you to the next level.
So...anyone take any classroom courses they would recommend?
