The dojo is open...

Codai's IT Samurai School is open for enrollment.  It's Flash, so it'll take a few moments to download...but I hope you'll agree it's worth the wait...

A few fun facts about the website and the school itself:

  • Born our of a short conversation at a BBQ concerning my desire to do high quality training
  • 100% Flash front-end, outside of the checkout screens
  • Built on latest S#arp Architecture available from the trunk
  • 6 months in the making, including the site and class preparation
  • 21 classes initially, including ASP.NET MVC, Object-Oriented JavaScript, SQL Server Integration Services, S#arp Architecture and many others
  • 5 cities initially, including Denver, Austin, San Jose, Washington DC, and Seattle
  • A handful of top notch trainers, including myself (IMHO)
  • Guest speakers and occasional, one-run only, unique courses

Codai's IT Samurai School

We look forward to seeing you in class!

Will you make records of these courses available online (for a fee)? It would be a waste if you wouldn't.

wayne, incidentally, my business partner and I have talked about a Europe tour...but we'll wait to see how enrollment goes here, first. ;)

Sandor, thanks for the idea, we'll take that into consideration.

Looks like the courses will be worth checking out if you guys get to Europe or even Ireland - can we sign up somewhere fro you to let us know?

Do you have a non-flash version of that site? The content looks interesting but the interface, while very pretty, is a poor experience.

Hi Mark, thanks for the feedback.  In a coming update to the site, we'll be addressing support for machines which have a difficult time with the 3D flash rendering.

Feel free to go to the "Contact" section of the site and send us a note to add you to our mailing list.  We'll keep you posted with any major site updates as well as when we plan to include Europe.

Great content!!!! it would be great if at least part of the material could make it online (off course whatever you consider commercially viable). I am from Argentina ... so I do not see you coming to visit us :) soon ...

Maybe a series for online buying?

Thanks for the feedback Federico.  We've discussed making our courses more readily available for download and will continue looking at opportunities to do so.
