Dr. Dave West is putting on a workshop March 30 to April 3 at the Santa Fe Complex in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our own James Foster will be leading the workshop, but it should be noted that this is not our workshop, Dr. Dave West is the organizer.

Here are the workshop details:

Building sophisticated multi-media, intensely interactive, Web applications is a significant challenge requiring mastery of multiple technologies.  GLASS provides a single environment, and language, for developing desktop-like Web applications.

This workshop will provide a GLASS overview and tutorial followed by a combination of hands-on projects and in-depth coverage of special topics (e.g. the incorporation of Sun’s Lively Kernel technology into GLASS).

James Foster of Gemstone will lead the workshop. You will also have the opportunity to work with prominent members of the Santa Fe Complex on projects.

Dates and Times: Monday, March 30 – Thursday, April 2, 8:30-4:00.  Friday, April 3, 8:30-noon.  Informal discussions, explorations, and hacking likely to take place each evening.

Where:  The Santa Fe Complex – 632 Agua Fria, in Santa Fe (one block from the RailRunner if you are coming up from Albuquerque)

Prerequisites: Some programming background will be helpful. Open to high school students.

Fee: $375 – includes lunch and breaks

Housing:  Discounted rates at hotels (all within walking distance of the Complex) will be available.
