Sonatype – the Maven Company – is the best source for learning about efficient infrastructure for your software development teams. Starting this week, it is easier than ever to get started.
Sonatype now offers online training courses. No need to book a flight, hotel, or car: all it takes is a high-speed internet connection and a computer capable of signing into a WebEx training session.
The first course, Maven Mechanics, offers the required knowledge for every software developer who works on a project that uses Maven to build and maintain software. After taking this class, you will understand the motivation for Maven, foundational concepts like the Maven Lifecycle, and the procedures for customizing a Maven build. It provides a solid foundation for anyone who wishes to proceed to take the second course.
The Development Infrastructure Design course goes into details of how to best design and implement a development infrastructure stack, from source control management, to repository management, build, and continuous integration. We use Maven, Nexus, m2eclipse, and Hudson technologies to cover these topics, and we discuss some of the emerging trends in this rapidly developing area of software development. Every software development project should have at least one engineer with the knowledge acquired in this course.
The online courses are delivered in two 4-hour sessions, generally on a Tuesday and a Thursday of the same week. For our enterprise customers, these courses can also be combined to create a comprehensive curriculum for on-site delivery.
