EGL Distance Learning 2013

Announcement: EGL Distance Learning 2013

Explore the emerging cross-platform rapid development environment from IBM that enables you to build Web, Web 2.0, and SOA solutions using EGL (IBM’s newest business language). Discover how quickly you can learn EGL and build state-of-the-art applications, all without getting bogged down in the technical complexities of middleware and runtime platforms.


Software programmers with 2+ years of experience using a computing language or platform, such as: COBOL, RPG, Visual Basic, PowerBuilder, Java, C/C++, PHP, or Ruby on Rails.


5 days total. 2 hours of e-conference time per day plus 3 to 5 additional hours of lab and workshop time per day.

Note: All workshops are in English only (unless otherwise noted in the announcement).


These instructor-led, free workshops provide an opportunity for you to learn EGL through e-conference-led presentations, and extensive hands-on labs, and experience EGL. Each day, the instructor will present two separate Web seminars to demonstrate techniques that include how to use the Eclipse workbench, EGL tooling, EGL (a deep-dive into the language), data access, Web 2.0 application development, and Service-Oriented Architecture.

After the Web seminars, you will be given exercises that include the topics of that day to complete. Class times and contact information are listed when you select a location and register for a session.

The workshops and hands-on lab exercises associated with the daily Web seminars will take between 3 to 5 hours a day to complete. An instructor will be available for questions. After completing the workshops, you will be ready to start building applications in EGL at or near production-requirements level on initial projects and pilots in your shop.

Here are two, one hour lecture sessions each day. One at 11:00 AM Eastern (New York City) Time, and the second at 2:00 PM Eastern Time – over an e-conference.
