I want to put EJB on my resume. I would be willing to pay for a class in Denver, but I can't seem to find any.
We have a pretty good Denver turnout on the JavaRanch - anybody have suggestions?

Paul,
If you think training is hard to find in Denver, try living in Pagosa Springs! Here are two suggestions I have however:
1. Colorado Software Summit - I think this is the premiere Java *programming* conference. It is held every fall at Keystone Resort, up in the ski country - Oct 29 thru Nov 3 this year. http://www.softwaresummit.com/
Be sure to check out the 1999 conference agenda to see the speakers and topics covered - it was awesome!
2. Bruce Eckel, the wizard of Crested Butte CO, is joining up with Bill Venners to give a course called: Objects & Patterns Five Days of Java Design on June 12-16, 2000 in Crested Butte. http://www.artima.com/javaseminars/public/OOEckelJun2000.html
Ok, granted neither of these are specifically focused on EJB - but you take the best education when you can find it, out on the Colorado range.
Let me know what you think of these two opportunities.
Dave

1) I've been to the last two Colorado Software Summits. They are the best. At the last conference I wasn't much interested in EJB. Now I am.
2) Where is crested Butte relative to Denver? How much do they want for this?

Ok Paul,
If you went to the Colorado Software Summit then you probably saw the presentations by Steve Wilcox from BEA Systems (which acquired his company, Avitek). The new Weblogic Commerce Server from BEA looks like a leading-edge platform for EJB development: http://www.beasys.com/products/weblogic/commerce/
What I liked about Steve's demo application, was that it showed that a cluster of new J2EE technologies (certainly JSP) are required in addition to EJB's and their container to make a fully functional Java Enterprise application. So I think a good EJB class would not focus solely on EJB architecture, but be oriented toward a complete J2EE solution.
Another company acquired by BEA, Technology Resource Group, Inc. (TRGI) is providing the BEA classroom training now, but of course they have nothing in Colorado: http://www.trgi.com/training/CourseOutline.jsp?CourseNumber=3000

Finally, check out these AvantSoft people, they seem to be IBM Websphere and VAJava oriented. But since they don't publish a course location schedule - perhaps we could pursuade them to come to Colorado if a minimum set of students signed up. Their course is described at: http://www.avantsoft.com/AS903_EJB.htm
Keep looking,
Dave

There are a few freebies coming in the next month. I'm thinking of jumping on those. One is from ObjectSpace and one is from... somebody I just got a flyer in the mail from

Paul,
It looks like ObjectSpace has turned over all of its education to ValTech, but there is no mention of free training on: http://www.valtech.com/us/training/
Where did you get your information?
I also had a recommendation to check out the courses from .profile Consulting in Boulder. They have no course specific to EJB or J2EE, but the instructors seem like qualified practitioners, are you familiar with them? http://www.sni.net/profcon/index.htm

I once worked for a company in Louisville that hired .profile to do some in-house Java and software design training. Tom Cargill led that training. He's a really knowledgeable guy, with a lot of real world experience. If all of the instructors are like him, I would recommend them. The cool thing was that he tailors his training to your project, so there are no obscure "widget" examples.
