Eiffel Corner

Did you ever wish you could create web servlets using Eiffel? Thanks to our friends at the Goanna project you now can!

Goanna provides an XMLC-like ( environment for Eiffel developers including a servlet engine, DOM implementation, HTML/XML parser and XML-to-Eiffel compiler (XMLE). Java developers familiar with servlet programming will be able to develop Eiffel servlets easily using the Goanna Framework. The Goanna servlet library provides a similar API to Java servlets.

.NET Experts Fall Workshops

Let us help you master .NET by taking one of our fall workshops. Topics include:

  • Using the .Net Frameworks and Libraries
  • Programming .Net with C#
  • Introduction to Eiffel and Object-Oriented Programming on .NET

Our workshops are intensive, in-depth, hands-on sessions enabling you to master all the details of .NET technologies and return home ready to deliver impressive, robust applications. Sessions usually run 5 days but can be delivered on-site from 1-5 days. Enrollment in each session is strictly limited so that each student can benefit from the personal attention of the instructors.
