North Haven, CT April 2, 2001:
New Technology Solutions today announced the immediate availability of fast, effective 1-day JavaTM seminars for professional software developers. NewTech, headquartered in Connecticut with offices in three states, is the originator of the VB BOOTCAMP®. The firm has trained over 50,000 developers since 1993.
“The software development world is undergoing a real sea change,” explains Dan Mezick, President, New Technology Solutions. “It’s a whole new ball game. JavaTM has gained real mindshare with CIOs and CEOs. In addition, Microsoft’s .NET revamp of Visual Studio is forcing developers to directly face the JavaTM question.”
The factors driving JavaTM include improvements to the language, Sun Microsystem’s purchase of Forte systems (developer of the Forte JavaTM IDE), and the lack of JavaTM support in Microsoft’s .NET runtime. Perhaps the most important factors include the incredible new Java-like features in the new VB7, also called VB.NET. These new Java-like features in VB are causing developers to look at JavaTM closely because knowldege of JavaTM could make the transition to VB.NET simpler when it is finally released.
“Many developers have put off learning JavaTM, ” explained Mezick. “The main reason was, there was no need to learn it. JavaTM was a curiousity for most business-oriented software developers. That situation has changed. Suddenly, VB looks and smells like JavaTM. With all these new market factors coming into play, the time has come to learn JavaTM. Developers want to learn JavaTM quickly. NewTech is providing pro developers the opportunity to learn JavaTM quickly, with the Java-ASAP!TM seminar series.”
Java-ASAP!TM is the perfect one-day ‘jumpstart’ experience for tech leads, programmers, project leads and project managers who must immediately get familiar with JavaTM. The seminars are led by experienced NewTech consulting instructors who will field your questions on Jbuilder, Forte, Javabeans, Applets, Servlets and JavaServer Pages.
The seminar is delivered in the same fast-forward, full-immersion format as the popular XML-asap!TM seminar. NewTech pioneered the fast-paced, full-immersion format now known as BOOTCAMP-style developer training. The company’s trainers, all accomplished consultants, create all NewTech training courses in-house. All NewTech instructors are full-time developers with extensive current expertise in the technologies they teach. NewTech never cancels a class and does not use independent contract trainers. All courses are guaranteed quality.
The JavaTM ASAP! seminar is comprehensive, demystifying JavaTM in a single day. All students receive a 500+ page JavaTM book, source code, the seminar including all course materials, 30 days of email Q&A tech support, and a disk with completed JavaTM applications on disk. Developers looking to register for Java-ASAP!TM should call the NewTech office to reserve limited seating. The course is offered as an open enrollment course in all NewTech locations.
