Why you don’t have to suck at Eclipse plugins…

My friend and former colleague Juan R. Rodriguez from Everclear Technologies Inc. is offering a 4 day workshop on developing plugins and composite applications for Expeditor 6.2 – which is what Lotus Notes 8.5 is based on.  You can check out the agenda and labs below – you will get a very wide breath of coverage in the Eclipse and Expeditor platform with the principles of componentation and composites applied.  So if you want to impress Nathan or get hired by his team you might want to check out this workshop.
