360Flex got a little brother now. It’s called 360|Flex Camp. The first camp will take place in a month in New Jersey. I knew this for a while but kept a secret – folks from New Jersey Flex Users Group had to take care of logistics of the event. Now it’s official, see details here. They are planning to add another 6 or 7 speakers.
As a part of this event, I’ll be running a full day hands-on Flex training on Friday. When I asked the organizers if they want it to be advanced or intro class, they simply answered, “It has to be an advanced introduction to Flex”. Sounds challenging, but I’ll come up with something to turn my students from “Flex, Who?” to people considering job offers for Flex positions. BTW, Farata Systems is hiring – we need a person who know Flex and Java for a very prestigious Wall Street company in New York City ($80-$85 p/h). Get in touch with me by sending an email at yfain at farataystems.com.
P.S. I’m going to MAX, yey! No speaking this time. During the day time, I’ll be sitting in the classrooms absorbing the knowledge, and in the evenings will be absorbing beer and networking with fellow Flex developers.
