Hello Nigel:

I would be interested in attending a training session. I am a complete
novice at Open Source programming so my interest would be in the
intoducctory level. Please keep me posted on any new developments.

Thank you for your work on this.


Best regards,

Hi Folks


A clarification on the course content from OpenGeo:


"The two day on-site (at your facility) training would be for the
schedule of your choice.   It is possible that we could get through the
entire OpenLayers material in a day, but it would be cutting it close.
Tim Schaub (our OpenLayers lead) is out on vacation so I do not have his
syllabus yet."


So if the training group wanted to focus on OpenLayers for the 2 days,
or maybe even one long day, then that would be possible.  With
OpenLayers being the least documented part of the OS family of products,
that would be my choice.  Or alternatively, all the course material
could be covered generally with more emphasis on one product, say


Let me know your interest.

Hi Folks


You are receiving this email because you have an interest in open source
web mapping.  I am trying to get a sense of the interest for a 2-day
training class from OpenGeo that would include the following:


Day 1

Introduction to the OpenGeo Suite

Introduction to the PostGIS

Introduction to the GeoServer

Introduction to the OpenLayers


Day 2

Advanced Administration

Advanced Web Cartography

Advanced PostGIS

Advanced GeoServer

Advanced OpenLayers

Developing GeoServer

Developing OpenLayers


The class content could also be customized to the group's interests.
The full class description is at http://opengeo.org/products/training
<http://opengeo.org/products/training> .


The total cost for the 2-day training class in Boston is about $5,500.
If split among 10 people, that would be $550/person.  For 8 people
(OpenGeo's preference), it would be $687/person.  If there is sufficient
interest, I will be looking for a venue.


If you are interested and have funding, please let me know. Thanks!
