Apache Maven Training in Vancouver – 1 week left to register

ApacheCon is in Vancouver this year, and now just 1 month away (Nov 7-11). There is still one week left to register for the training sessions, and to qualify for the early bird rate on the conference.

As in previous years, I’ll be offering an up-to-date version of the training course, Apache Maven: Effective Implementation:

This training course is designed to go beyond your current assumptions about Apache Maven and learn how to use it most effectively to manage the build and development process. Whether you are a novice aiming to start on the right foot, or a regular user looking to get more out of Maven and avoid common frustrations, this course will give you the skills you need to apply to your own projects. By working through a series of short exercises applied to a complete sample application, you will learn how to apply common patterns in Maven builds to achieve the desired outcome, while learning best practices and common pitfalls along the way. Topics include installation, Maven fundamentals, working efficiently with multi-module projects, simplifying the POM, the best general purpose plugins that you should know about, integration and functional testing, when (and when not) to use Maven sites and reporting, the role of profiles, snapshots and dependency management, repository management, and performing releases. The content is updated for the latest improvements in Maven 2.2 and Maven 3, and will cater to your preference of development environment. Time is reserved for sharing specific situations that attendees have encountered in existing projects.

The course runs for a full day on Tuesday, 8 November. If you’re planning to attend the training or the conference, you can connect to me on the conference website.

Last chance to register for Training and Receive Maven Book Free


Packt Publishing, the publishers of Apache Maven 2: Effective Implementation, will be present at ApacheCon North America, coming up on November 1 – 5, 2010. They’ll have an exhibitors table with information about their books on Apache projects such as OFBiz, Tomcat, MyFaces, jMeter, Maven, and more.

They’ve generously offered to sponsor free copies of the Maven book for attendees to the Maven training course on November 1. However, this could be extended until today only, so that the correct number can be ordered. Please register now!

One of the attractions of writing for Packt was their involvement in open source, such as through their Open Source Royalties program, and their Open Source Awards. I’m glad to see that they’ll be at ApacheCon.

Register for Training by Oct 13 and Receive Maven Book Free

As I posted earlier this week, I will be running a full day Maven training course at ApacheCon on November 1.

I’ve now been able to confirm that I can offer a free copy of the book Apache Maven 2: Effective Implementation to everyone that completes the course. However, to ensure the right amount can be ordered and shipped in time, you must have registered before October 13.

There are still discounted rates for the training and conference for today, so all the more reason to register as soon as possible!

Apache Maven Training in Atlanta: Nov 1, 2010

ApacheCon is fast approaching! If you’re coming to the conference, or anywhere near Atlanta, then I hope you’ll take a look at the training course I’m running there this year, Apache Maven: Effective Implementation:

This training course is designed to go beyond your current assumptions about Apache Maven and learn how to use it most effectively to manage the build and development process. Whether you are a novice aiming to start on the right foot, or a regular user looking to get more out of Maven and avoid common frustrations, this course will give you the skills you need to apply to your own projects.

By working through a series of short exercises applied to a complete sample application, you will learn how to apply common patterns in Maven builds to achieve the desired outcome, while learning best practices and common pitfalls along the way.

Topics include installation, Maven fundamentals, working efficiently with multi-module projects, simplifying the POM, the best general purpose plugins that you should know about, integration and functional testing, when (and when not) to use Maven sites and reporting, the role of profiles, snapshots and dependency management, repository management, and performing releases.

The content is updated for the latest improvements in Maven 2.2 and Maven 3, and will cater to your preference of development environment.

Time is reserved for sharing specific situations that attendees have encountered in existing projects. A laptop already configured for Java development is essential.

This year gives us the unique opportunity to get a first look at a GA release of Maven 3.0 in addition to building on a comprehensive example of how to use Maven effectively in your projects and with your teams.

Early bird prices end this Friday, October 8. Register for Apache Maven: Effective Implementation now!

I’ll be at the conference all week, and as usual hope to catch up with users and contributors as much as possible. I’ll also be speaking – though surprisingly on a topic completely unrelated to Maven (possibly a first!).

Free Maven Meetup at ApacheCon US

A few Maven committers are going to be at ApacheCon US in Oakland next week, and we’ve organised for a free user and developer meetup as part of the conference schedule. It’ll be held on Tuesday, November 3, at 8pm.

Brian has posted a short signup page, so if you’re planning to come along, please add your name there. You might also want to talk about a particular subject for 15 minutes and add it to the proposed agenda.

There’s still time to sign up for my Maven training course on Monday, November 2 as well, which you can do from the main conference registration page.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
