Online Eclipse RCP Training

I was checking my blog this morning for comments and I noticed this Google Ad for Quickstart Eclipse RCP Training so I clicked the link and found a pretty nice venue for Eclipse RCP education.  I often recommend the old RCP book (which is kind of dated at this point) and I think getting a fresh online course is much better considering most of what you can find is on the internet.  Once you get a primer with the basics you will be able to Google for just about anything.  This course looks like it starts in about 2 weeks.

From the site:

Public RCP Quickstart course to be held online, June 24th – 26th, 2009.


This course will be held online using the GoToMeeting service. The PDF manual and lab materials will be delivered as an encrypted archive available a few days before the course begins.
The timing of the course is meant to be convenient for students throughout North America, though you’re welcome to take the course from anywhere in the world. The specific course times for the North American time zones are as follows:

  • Eastern: 11am – 6pm
  • Central: 10am – 5pm
  • Mountain: 9am – 4pm
  • Pacific: 8am – 3pm
