I know, you wouldn’t think a software engineer would be THAT into people, but I am of the mind that none of the work I do for my clients does them any good without people to use the software and applications that we are working to improve. Without including them, there is little chance of success. Our process starts with people, what their needs are and what isn’t working for them. This goes beyond poor connectivity or integration and gets to the heart of what is really needed to help them be successful.
Throughout the process, people are involved, but maybe the most important aspect of this is how we make sure end users are educated not only on what to expect with the changes made but how to keep the same issues from arising again. That is where my newest and most exciting piece of my services comes into play, with my introduction of 72 Academy, Software Development Training!
72 Academy offers an opportunity for your employees to access my expertise and experience through a guided course either online or in person over a day or several days, depending on the software application training needed and how in-depth the course needs to be. The courses are customizable to our clients when necessary or requested. There are a wide variety of application and integration courses available, but there are three main courses that have quickly become the most requested.
The goal of the Java Enterprise Application Development Course is to help experienced Java programmers in your organization learn how to design and implement reliable and performant Java enterprise applications. This course is an intensive, in-depth 5-day training session.

Our courses are created with emerging technology in mind. The courses will change as the landscape changes and we will offer options to help businesses and their technical staff stay at the head of the pack when it comes to applications and software integrations. Ultimately, we want you to be successful and efficient in executing the use of any software or applications that your business depends on, whether we were part of the integration process or not. Too often software developers or software architects forget about the people. In our world, your people are the most important part of the process. 72 Academy was created with this in mind.
