Launching Training Programs

Today, I’m formally launching my new venture to help companies grow and retain software talent. I’ve spent the last 15 years growing the talent pool at SRT Solutions, the firm I sold last August. I know first hand the challenge of hiring and retaining software developers. I also know the investment needed to grow talent, and ensure that developers always have the skills that are needed for modern application development.

The classes I’ve developed are on the same topics where I mentored the great developers at SRT Solutions: C#, LINQ, ASP.NET web development, and Lean Development Practices. The material leverages successful talks and seminars I’ve given at national and international conferences. And, of course, some of the material comes from my Effective C# books. You can see the full list, and the current course catalog here.

I’m limiting the class size to 20 people so that I can spend enough time with each attendee throughout the course. I’m also teaching all the courses myself. I’m not licensing the material to others, or hiring other instructors. Every class will be taught by me personally.

If your organization could benefit, please let me know.

Current Projects

I create content for .NET Core. My work appears in the .NET Core documentation site. I'm primarily responsible for the section that will help you learn C#.

All of these projects are Open Source (using the Creative Commons license for content, and the MIT license for code). If you would like to contribute, visit our GitHub Repository. Or, if you have questions, comments, or ideas for improvement, please create an issue for us.

I'm also the president of Humanitarian Toolbox. We build Open Source software that supports Humanitarian Disaster Relief efforts. We'd appreciate any help you can give to our projects. Look at our GitHub home page to see a list of our current projects. See what interests you, and dive in.

Or, if you have a group of volunteers, talk to us about hosting a codeathon event.
