Free XPages Training in Chicago

As Roy Rumaner and Alex Kassabov blogged, GRANITE is having a technical seminar that will be graciously hosted by PSC Group at their offices in Schaumburg, IL on March 15. This XPages training is part of our GRANITE technical series that we have started. This first session of the series will be available for both members and non-members at no cost. For non-members we normally charge $15.00 for each event. If you were recently laid off, the entire XPages series will be free of charge. I strongly encourage everyone to join GRANITE since it provides many benefits to the Lotus community.

GRANITE is put together by volunteers whom like myself devote our time to help the Lotus community. With the recently layoffs at Abbott of their Notes developers and layoffs at other organizations, this is a good time to get yourself some training on the newest Lotus technologies. We will be also working with the IBM VIC in downtown Chicago to provide addition technical seminars in addition to our bi-monthly meetings in which we have two to three technical presentations.

Nice idea to let those recently laid off get the XPages training free of charge.

One thing I have been thinking about is making this training monthly instead of every other month to get everyone up to speed faster. Maybe the second session could be done after the April meeting in the Loop. Food for thought.
