    i look for Java training and course

    Hello,
    Searching for a Java course. The cheapest one that I found is Mercuria technologies ltd, it seems to be a small company, they are in Cyprus. And they don’t accept post-payment, and their course is online only. Any provider that would offer a physical course in our Dublin offices for less than 2000€ ? (3 participants).
    If not, we’ll go ahead with Mercuria. They told us that if there is an issue, we always can cancel the transaction with VISA. Is it true ?

    I would talk to visa about their cancellation policy and get the true facts instead of guesses.

    IMHO Java is a hard language to learn.

    A *good* Java course, in my opinion, would be at least 6 weeks long. 10 to 12 weeks would be better.

    But let's say 6 weeks. The number of participants isn't too significant; one to maybe 8 or 10 should cost about the same.

    But 6 weeks of one trainer's time. If that trainer is a real professional programmer, he should be making around 100,000 Euro per year. Which works out to about 2,000 Euro per week. So for 6 weeks, you should be paying him at least 12,000 Euro.

    In my opinion, if somebody is willing to do this for 2,000 Euro, then he is probably not a very good programmer and you likely aren't going to get results even worth that price. Or if the course is only for one week, then it's not worth bothering with. Your people can learn much more from online materials if they will really and truly study and do the exercises for six weeks.

    Compared to what? But yes, in general, it's one of the harder languages to learn well. Up there with C# but not as complex as C++.

    But oracle (the makers of java) ...
    Well, at least the buyers of Java. <grin/> I wonder how many people there are still at Oracle that were at Sun in the early days of Java? Certainly none of the original creators of the language.

    In fact, look at the basic java book, then the column title book can learn, then followed by a few video Chuanzhi podcasts do, about the thinking of you, I'm learning Java 2 months, but I Sophomore is, itself, learned C++, so the inheritance and polymorphism ratio more understanding of it, is now on the Java, more and more confident. Come on.
