We do a lot of stuff. We do it well.

This year was a very busy year, and most conferences did not line up with my training schedule. Sorry if you expected to see me in some conferences. The good thing, is that there is no place like home, and you can see my yesterday's NDK lecture at DroidCon here
A new MobSecCon is on the work, and will also take place in the holy land. Stay tuned for updates.

    Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) Training - All material updated!

    posted Oct 23, 2015, 1:27 PM by Ron Munitz   [ updated Oct 23, 2015, 1:29 PM ]

    I am extremely proud and happy to announce that I have finished updating all my training material to the Android Marshmallow version, and can take training Purchase Orders as soon as November 1st. 
    I am offering both On-Site and Virtual training in English, Spanish and Hebrew. The materials are in English and in the respective programming languages (sorry, no translations). 
    The courses include: Android Internals, Android Security (3 courses, 5, 3 and 2 days respectively), Advanced Native Programming and Android Bootcamp.

    For the updated course outlines, see http://www.thepscg.com/courses . The bottom section (Subpages) includes links to detailed outlines. 

    Guidelines for making a corporate training happen on 2015:
    1. Be serious - know what you want, and do more than you talk. If plan on just asking around - don't bother, go somewhere else. Don't waste your service provider's time, and don't let them waste yours.
    2. Know your budget - You get what you pay for. I deliver the best training in the industry ==> Do the math, and don't be cheap.
    3. Send an email to training@thepscg.com explaining who you are, how many people you are, what training you need, when you need it,  and why you think you need it. 

    Training discussions for 2016 will be a bit less strict, but generally the guidelines always hold, for every service in the universe. That's how business work.


    At the moment, there are no public training planned until the end of 2015, except for my workshops at BuildStuff.lt and AnDevCon Santa Clara.
    As always, I might open a public training upon specific requests, as in the upcoming Android Security workshop on November 5th which is already sold out. 


    Happy Marshmallow-ing,
    Ron

    Open Enrollment Courses in Israel

    posted Apr 24, 2015, 3:04 PM by Ron Munitz

    I have decided to publish the planned next couple of public courses I teach in Israel. 
    While I'm not aiming for mass (or any) marketing, I think those who may need the courses would know to appreciate the simplicity of this website.
    The courses are:

    From this point an on, when I open public courses I will publish information about them in the Upcoming Open Enrollments announcements page.


    A minor clarification about our "landing page"

    posted Mar 26, 2015, 6:51 PM by Ron Munitz

    The chances we will work with companies we don't know personally are about the chances the meteor will indeed hit earth today. 
    So no, at the moment we couldn't care less about the marketing. Only Ron is "out in the clear", given his public involvements with some training companies, and given that he's basically the boss...
    When we have more international experts working with us, we *may* have a nicer page. Or maybe repaint the background to pink. 

    Ron's Android Internals course in Israel, first Week of may, to be announced [there can be place for enrolling  for the Mid April course, if you have significant Hands-On Linux driver development experience]

    Message will self destruct.
