Here is a list of some of the public classes that we will be offering throughout the year in our downtown Denver office:
Spring 3 Training -
This course covers all the important capabilities of Spring® 3, including using Spring to simplify the creation of a persistence layer with JDBC and/or persistence frameworks like Hibernate® and JPA. It includes coverage of advanced capabilities such as using Spring's Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) to program cross-cutting concerns such as transactions and security.The course includes integration of Spring with Java EE Web applications, and an introduction to Spring Security v3, its architecture, and how to use it to secure both Web application request and bean invocations.
C++ Training -
This course is a comprehensive hands-on introduction to object oriented programming in C++ for C programmers. Emphasis is placed on the features of C++ that support effective modeling of the problem domain and reuse of code. The course consists of two modules. In the first module object oriented concepts are introduced. The C++ class construct is introduced and its key features elaborated step-by-step, providing full implementation of abstract data types. C++ memory management is discussed. Function and operator overloading and the use of references are covered. The scope and access control mechanisms of C++ are described. Inheritance is introduced. The use of virtual functions to implement polymorphism is discussed. The second module presents intermediate topics. The ANSI C++ Standard Library is covered, including namespaces, the new header files and basic string class. Templates are covered, including an introduction to the Standard Template Library (STL). There is a chapter on I/O streams, including formatting and file I/O. Practical issues of C++ programming, such as reliability, testing, efficiency and interfacing to C, are discussed. The course introduces newer features of C++ such as exceptions, runtime type information (RTTI), and the new C++ cast syntax. Extensive programming examples and exercises are provided. The course is designed so that it can be taught in any environment with an ANSI C++ compiler.
Perl Training -
Perl has been described as C, awk, sed, and shell programming all wrapped into one language. Learn how to take advantage of Perl's power through examples and extensive hands-on exercises. This course introduces object-oriented programming in Perl.
Hibernate Training -
Hibernate is a 3 day open source object/relational (OR) persistence and query service for Java. Hibernate lets you develop persistent classes following common Java idioms - including association, inheritance, polymorphism, composition and the Java collections framework. The Hibernate Query Language, designed as a minimal object-oriented extension to SQL, provides an elegant bridge between the object and relational worlds. Hibernate also allows you to express queries using native SQL or Java-based Criteria and Example queries. JBoss has integrated Hibernate into its JEMS (Java Enterprise Middleware System) product line. The Java Persistence API (EJB 3) specification derives a great deal of its architecture from Hibernate, and the Hibernate annotations are compatible with the Java Persistence annotations. This promises to make Hibernate an even more important technology.
C# Training -
This thorough and comprehensive five-day course is a practical introduction to programming in C#, utilizing the services provided by .NET. This course emphasizes the C# language. It is current to Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0, which introduces important new features such as dynamic data type, named and optional arguments, and the use of variance in generic interfaces. The new features are covered in a new chapter. A new supplement covers the fundamentals of Language Integrated Query (LINQ), which was introduced with .NET 3.5. This course is intended to be fully accessible to programmers who do not already have a strong background in object-oriented programming in C-like languages, such as C++ or Java. It is ideal, for example, for Visual Basic 6 or COBOL programmers who desire to learn C#. An important thrust of the course is to teach C# programming from an object-oriented perspective. It is often difficult for programmers trained originally in a procedural language to start thinking in objects. This course introduces object-oriented concepts early, and C# is developed in a way that leverages its object orientation. A case study is used to illustrate creating a complete system using C# and .NET. Besides supporting traditional object-oriented features, such as classes, inheritance, and polymorphism, C# introduces several additional features, such as properties, indexers, delegates, events, and interfaces that make C# a compelling language for developing object-oriented and component-based systems. This course provides thorough coverage of all these features. C# as a language is elegant and powerful. But to utilize its capabilities fully, you need to have a good understanding of how it works with the .NET Framework. The course explores several important interactions between C# and the .NET Framework, and it includes an introduction to major classes for collections, delegates, and events. It includes a succinct introduction to creating GUI programs using Windows Forms. The course concludes with a chapter covering the new features in C# 4.0.
Java Training -
Intensive and hands-on, the course emphasizes becoming productive quickly as a Java application developer. This course quickly covers the Java 5.0 language syntax and then moves into the object-oriented features of the language. Students will then use several of the provided API packages, such as I/O streams, collections, Swing GUI programming, threads, and accessing a database with JDBC. The course ends with a chapter on performance tuning with hints and best practices for writing efficient applications. Appendices on sockets, regular expressions and J2EE are also available for further study.
ASP .NET Training -
This five-day course provides a comprehensive and practical hands-on introduction to developing Web applications using ASP.NET 4.0 and C#. It includes an introduction to ASP.NET MVC, a new Web programming framework that incorporates use of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. It also includes coverage of using ASP.NET AJAX to build rich client applications. The fundamentals of Web applications are reviewed, and a testbed is established for ASP.NET and Internet Information Services. The architecture of ASP.NET is outlined, including the role of compilation, the Page class and code-behind. Web Forms are introduced, including server controls, view state, life cycle, and the event model. Request/response HTTP programming using ASP.NET is covered as are ASP.NET Web applications, caching in ASP.NET, and the fundamentals of configuration and security. Data access is covered in some detail in two chapters, including an introduction to ADO.NET, Language Integrated Query (LINQ), and the powerful data access controls provided by ASP.NET 4.0. The final section of the course introduces rich client-side development with ASP.NET AJAX and use of the ASP.NET MVC framework.
