  • What is a Pivotal Course?
    • These are courses on Spring framework and related technologies, offered and certified by SpringSource, the company behind development and advancement of Spring framework.

      All the courses offered are designed and developed by the project lead and core committers on the associated opensource project; the technical depth and quality of these courses is supreme. For example, the Core Spring course has been developed by Rod Johnson and team including the likes of Rob Harrop and Dave Syer among others. Similarly, the Groovy and Grails course has been developed by Graeme Rocher, creator of Grails and Guillaume Laforge, project lead for Groovy. The same is true for Enterprise Spring course, which has individual project training topics created by the respective project leads – be it Dave Syer for Spring Batch or Mark Fisher for Spring Integration etc, and Rich Web Applications with Spring course, which has been created and is actively maintained by the project lead and the most outspoken evangelist of Spring Web project – Keith Donald.
