On Site Training
Rather than sending the entire team to a training class, bring the training class to you. Whether your team is just getting started with Wicket or has a specific skill that they need to learn to complement their Wicket knowledge, an on-site course can be crafted to your needs. Offering anywhere from two to five day courses, your team can gain the skills it needs to make your projects successful.
-- Not Boring Lectures
You go to classes because you want to learn something, and leave with a new skill. When you leave this class, you will have coded at least one working Wicket application. Many have called my method of teaching "innovative". But I don't believe that it really is. We all learn things by doing them, and I structure my classes around that philosophy.
You know that all of us have dozed off before while watching someone at a projector flipping through a PowerPoint presentation. You'll have a hard time falling asleep in my classes. The class will consist of fast-moving explanations of core design principles, Wicket components, and "The Wicket Way", and each section will be followed by a coding practice where you can put into use what you just learned.
For more information about what you will learn in the class, see our Wicket training curriculum page.
With many frameworks, there would be no way to learn enough pertinent information in just a few days to prepare you for really using the framework. But with Wicket's easy learning curve, and the fast-paced, hands-on style of these classes /slash/ workshops, you will feel confident using Wicket when you leave.
What Will You Gain?
When you leave, you will have built an impressive Wicket application yourself. You may even look back and wonder how you had the time to build such an application while you were in a class for only a few days!
If you have never used Wicket before, you will leave the class with a solid foundation to build your very own application with it. Even if you have used Wicket before, you should leave with an improved understanding of best practices, and some new tricks up your sleeve for getting back into your own applications.
In most classes, I also provide several copies of the great book Wicket in Action for free. Consider it your "continuing education" once you've returned to work.If you have any other questions or comments, feel free to contact me.
