Introductory Short Course in Object Technology
11, 12, 13 December 1995

Staffordshire University School of Computing are able to offer a limited
number of FREE places on this 3 day short course thanks to funding from
the European Social Fund (ESF)

This is an introductory, three day, hands on course aimed at introducing
Object Technology  (OT) to those persons responsible for making or
advising strategic decisions in computer software related activities.  
Such people could include DP managers, consultants, senior developers, or
any other practitioner who has an interest in this dynamic technology.  
The course is aimed at introducing OT to attendees in such a way as to
dispel the current hype surrounding the subject and allow them to make
more objective decisions regarding the value of OT to their own companies
or personal careers.

The normal fee for this course would be 750 per delegate (at 250 per
day) but thanks to a European Social Fund (ESF) subsidy a small number of
 places are available free of charge on the December course to those who
fit the ESF criteria.  To be eligable for a subsidised place people
should either be employed  in Small to Medium sized Enterprises SMEs
(1-250 employees) or be unemployed practitioners.  With respect to those
employed in SMEs, special consideration will be given to those facing
redundancy who wish to upskill into Object Technology.  Companies may
also consider using this course as part of a general redundancy package.

As an unemployed practitioner, can I apply for a set of the Docs?

Brief resume: I built the first 400 coin laundries in Japan -- before me
no coin laundries -- and made a fair bit of money.  This I invested
inmaking auto parts, disk brake rotors here in Canada, at exactly the
time of a.) the 1991 recession and inventory liquidation and b.) China
beginning to produce good quality rotors, marketed for the price of a raw
cating in North America.  This made me poor again, and I have recently
been granted bankruptcy.

I expect my next career to be in computation, and I am studying Lisp,
APL/J, and Smalltalk -- this last because it seems to me C++ has been
oversold and is about to crash.  

I have watched computation fairly carefully since 1949 when I read about
Von Neuman and decided this was going to be important, but always in an
amateur sort of way.  "Know enough so the tekkies can't put one over on
you" sort of thing.  This time, at the age of 52, I'm going to get my
feet wet, and I would appreciate any help you can afford me.

                           With very best wishes,
