Back To Training

December 7, 2010 7:29:15.902

My first job will be to deliver some (very compressed) training. On the project I'm on, there's a deployment rolling out to a new group, and some of the developers are in town to learn about the app. As part of that process, they need to learn Smalltalk. So.... I'm doing that part :)

The schedule is tough - we have 2 1/2 days to get them through a basic intro - and having just spent a week doing this, I have my doubts about how much will stick in this short a span of time.

There's nothing for it though - I'll see what we can do in the amount of time we have, and then refer them off to the extensive library of screencasts over at the Cincom Smalltalk website.

Oh, one small thought on those - if you've found those screencasts useful, be aware that there aren't any new ones coming in that particular series (I'm covering Pharo in my new series of casts). As Cincom releases new versions of their products, the older screencasts (especially the ones dealing with the tools) are going to start getting dated. I wsn't completely caught up to VW 771 and OS 821 when I left, so that's already happening for some of them :)
