Big Nerd Ranch today announced the dates of its Analysis and Design Bootcamp. The class is slated for August 27-31, 2007 and is specifically designed for all Object-Oriented programmers wishing to apply rigorous analysis and design techniques to their software. Highly-acclaimed A&D Bootcamp instructor John Graziano initially developed this course while serving as training project lead for NeXT; since then the curriculum has benefited from and evolved with his work as architect on WebObjectsBuilder, lead engineer for Apple’s Xcode Development Environment, and as head of the Mac OS X Compiler Team. The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers and system administrators in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of US$3,500 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and ground transportation to and from the Atlanta airport.
