Bonn, Germany - September 27, 2005 - Following a constant demand the  
Big Nerd Ranch will be offering their classes in Europe. The Big Nerd  
Ranch Europe, operated by Stefanie Höfling, is located in Bonn, Germany,

To achieve a similar training experience as the famous bootcamps in  
Atlanta, the European classes will also be taught in a retreat  
environment far from the distractions inherent in standard corporate  
training. Our Italian facility in Frascati, the famous "city of wine"  
in the "Castelli Romani" area is located 30 minutes east of the  
eternal city of Rome.

This winter Big Nerd Ranch Europe is offering the following classes:

The PostgreSQL Bootcamp with Chris Campbell, Dec 12-16, 2005, near  
Rome, Italy
The Cocoa Bootcamp with Aaron Hillegass, Jan 16-20, 2006, near Rome,  
PostgreSQL instructor Chris Campbell comes to Italy for the first  
bootcamp at the Big Nerd Ranch Europe. The highly successful  
PostgreSQL 8.1 Bootcamp is now open for European students. At the  
ranch in Atlanta this bootcamp is rapidly becoming one of the most  
popular of the classes in the Big Nerd Ranch lineup, routinely  
selling out all seats. PostgreSQL has revolutionized the way  
developers approach database management by providing an open source  
solution ideally equipped to handle complex, sophisticated database  
management needs. As its popularity grows, companies are discovering  
a viable and low-cost alternative to the expensive Oracle and SQL  
Server giants.

Chris Campbell has an extensive background in database management and  
PostgreSQL. He's been teaching the course for two years and  
continually includes updates and fine-tuning to the syllabus to  
create the most effective and useful lessons for up-and-coming  
PostgreSQL administrators.

Big Nerd Ranch Europe also offers the chance to learn Core Data in  
Italy: Cocoa Bootcamp on Tiger. Core Data represents one of the  
Tiger's key new features by simplifying the persistence of data  
models for the developer, and features such as redo, undo and support  
for the document architecture just work. In addition to Core Data,  
Cocoa Bootcamp covers the fundamental principles of programming in  
Cocoa, such as bindings. Cocoa Bootcamp instructor, Aaron Hillegass,  
recently re-structured the curriculum, incorporating Core Data and  
other exciting new Tiger features into the existing syllabus. These  
updates are vital in helping students emerge from the intensive, five- 
day bootcamp armed with the most cutting-edge skills available to  
Cocoa developers.

Aaron Hillegass, whose experience as a Cocoa developer makes him the  
ideal instructor for Cocoa Bootcamp, boasts an extensive career in  
development and instruction. His book, Cocoa Programming for Mac OS  
X, has rapidly become one of the fundamental reference books for  
Cocoa Developers and is the primary text used for class.

The price (€2800 + VAT) for a five-day class includes luxurious room  
and board. There is a special price of €2500 + VAT if you sign up at  
least five weeks before the class starts.
