ApacheCon Europe wants to teach you a lesson

Whether you’re immersing yourself in code at the Hackathon, kicking around ideas at BarCampApache, or just having a drink with your peers, ApacheCon is all about two things: sharing knowledge and having fun while doing it. But sometimes people want more structured, traditional workshops and classes too.

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. We’re running special training sessions over the two days prior to the main ApacheCon conference, Monday 23 March and Tuesday 24 March. We’ve invited some of world’s the most experienced open source developers and industry experts to come over to Amsterdam and pass on their experience through lively half-day, full-day or two day courses.

Topics covered by the training sessions include:

  • Creating services using a REST style approach
  • Building standalone Couch DB applications
  • Getting the most out of Lucene
  • Apache HTTP Server 2.2
  • A full training course for Tomcat, from basic configuration to advanced tuning
  • Apache Wicket
  • JavaServer Faces 1.2
  • The ins and outs of Solr
  • Strut 2, a new second generation web application framework
  • How to organise a product lifecycle management with Maven
  • Building and deploying web services with Apache CXF
  • Basic and advanced media and analyst training

A pretty diverse range of topics, we think you’ll agree. The courses are open to all, so if you want to brush up your skills, or develop some new ones, head on over to to register.

And while you’re there, make sure you register for ApacheCon Europe 2009 too. With new features, like BarCampApache, and the open-to-all Hackathon, it will be a conference to remember.
