Springtime in Switzerland
For over a decade now, I've been running public training classes in both presentation skills
and software development in conjunction with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics,
the University of Lausanne, and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne.
This year, in the week of March 9-13, we're offering my full set of Presentation Skills classes as a three-day sequence (though, of course, you can also sign up for just one or two of the classes, if you prefer):
We’re also offering two general software development classes:
These two classes are based on my popular Perl courses on these topics, but I've now
redesigned and adapted them to be entirely language-neutral, so they're equally useful
to developers working in any other mainstream language(s).
During the same week I’ll also be giving a half-day seminar on Raku, which has been generously sponsored by EPFL and so will cost nothing to attend. It’s suitable for anyone who would like a quick but comprehensive overview of this remarkable new programming language.
Besides making the Raku seminar entirely free, SIB/UNIL/EPFL have done an amazing job
keeping the prices of the other classes extremely competitive...especially if you can claim
a plausible association to any academic institution, either as a student or staff member.
If you’re looking for some training that’s economical, practical, and just plain fun,
in a location that’s central, civilised, and simply breathtaking, then this week
in Switzerland might fit just the bill.
At present these are the only public classes I have scheduled anywhere in the world in 2020, so if you’d like to work with me to substantially improve your skills in either public speaking or software development, this is your opportunity. I hope to see you there.
