Relaxed, stress-free learning environment
We are unique in our relaxed, stress-free teaching style that is focused on knowledge retention. We do not overwhelm you with too much information too quickly. We start out with the fundamentals and teach you in the correct order, always building on what you have learned the day before, with lots of repetition.
Our students tell us they are amazed at how much knowledge they retain from our training courses. They are constantly amazed at how fast they are up & running with their development efforts upon returning to work. We maintain long-term relationships with our students and we enjoy hearing updates from them on the success of their projects made possible by our training (and their hard work). Most of our students come back and take more courses from us. Our students often contribute to developerlife.com based on their real-world experiences, which benefits the entire community.

After training – Consulting Services to help accelerate your development efforts
|In addition to training services, we provide consulting services to help you build Android, BlackBerry, web, and desktop applications that are service enabled. It takes time to get up to speed with Android, BlackBerry, or any other new technology, and our consulting services can accelerate the rate of your initial development, while you’re getting up to speed with new technology; and you can take over as soon as you’re up to speed. We offer this accelerator program only to our students.
This accelerator program is a mentoring engagement where we will oversee the success and launch of your project in the real-world. Typically, this entails between 1-3 weeks of consulting (we bill time & materials, this not a fixed price/length engagement).
