I posted this to the Scala message board, but I don't think many people read that, so I thought I'd send an email as well:
don't know if anyone would be interested, but there is a Scala training
in San Fransisco from Sept 26-Sept 30th:
http://www.artima.com/shop/stairway_to_scala. There is an option to just
go for the advanced training which is on Sept 29th and Sept 30th.
The course is given by Bill Venners (The guy who co-wrote the
excellent 'Programming in Scala' book) and Dick Wall of the Java Posse.
I'm pretty sure I'm going, but there is a sweet discount if you get a
group of 5
or more to sign up , so I thought I'd put this out there and see if
there was enough interest to get a group of 5. I think it would be a
fantastic training and in 5 days we could learn so much!
