Greetings everyone. There has been a lot going on in the Liferay Training department and I wanted to give you a quick update of what we’ve been up to and what’s coming up in the next couple months.
In May, we offered training in conjunction with our East Coast Symposium. This was the first time that we’ve done this, but based on the feedback of the Community, we will definitely be planning on doing this again. As part of the pre-ECS training, Stephen Kostas led the inaugural offering or our Developing Themes with Liferay course. The class was very well received and will be available again as a public training in Chicago in August. The ECS training was also the first offering of Portal Administrator Express training here in the US. For clients looking at Private Trainings, both of these one-day trainings are good add-ons to our 3 day Portal Developer training.
This month, we’re putting the finishing touches on our Advanced Developer Training. In fact, we just wrapped up an internal preview of this course in which all of the material was presented to and reviewed by senior Liferay consultants and engineers. Based on this week’s preview, I think you’re really going to like this new course. The first offering of this course is scheduled for July 13 – 15 in Philadelphia. There are still seats available and if you book your seat before next Friday, you can use discount code SECRET400 to save $400 dollars of your registration.
Once the Advanced Developer Training is out the door, we’ll be turning out attention to creating new materials for the next release of Liferay. Be on the look out for details about the updates to the courses and new course offerings.
