Intertech, a Java and .NET Training and Consulting firm, has launched a program to support .NET, Java, XML, and related technologies user groups. The program gives members a $50 Barnes and Noble gift card, a certificate for an enrollment ($2,495 value) for training in Intertech’s courses, and a quarterly “care package” with raffle items for user group meetings.
To qualify, a group needs to be based in the US or Canada, hold a minimum of four scheduled meetings per year, and be focused on .NET, Java, XML or related technologies. In exchange for sponsorship, Intertech requires that user groups include Intertech in their sponsor list on their website and newsletter.
“In today’s environment where professionals are looking to improve their skills and may not have the resources to pay for training, user groups deliver free instruction on software development-related technologies. We believe supporting these groups helps improve the overall business environment,” stated Intertech CEO, Tom Salonek.
The major user group technologies that qualify include:
- Java Technologies: Java, Java Web Development, Spring Framework, Struts, Hibernate, JSF
