Funding Model

Seats in this course are being sold in a non-traditional manner. We like to think of the sales model as a kick-starter for curriculum. We are selling 25 group seats in the program. Each company that buys a seat may send as many attendees as they would like. If all 25 seats are sold the full curriculum, including teacher resources, will be released as GPL and made available for other training companies to deliver. Companies buying a seat in the program will be eligible to have their logo included in the course material and be recognized as a sponsor of the program. Smaller companies who are anxious to participate in the first round may team up; however, only one logo will be used on the sponsorship page.

Company seats are available for $1500USD. On registration, you will be contacted via email with an invoice. Seats are only confirmed when payment is received. First paid, first served. As there are only 25 spaces available, we encourage you to register early for this program.

To ensure your company is a good fit for this program, please contact Emma before registering.


I'm very interested in the concept and topic of this training program, but am quite surprised by the (relatively) high price tag of $1500. It's going to be hard to sell my boss on such a high cost for a web-only meeting without knowing more about what we're going to get out of that investment.

That's not really a question, but it is an email that Emma received. This was the answer:

Run as a single-day, on-site workshop this would cost participants $300-500 (per seat). Instead of running the workshop on-site, we are breaking it into two half days and running the workshop online. Both Lorna and Emma are experienced technical trainers. We've written three books and have over 15 years of teaching experience. These prices reflect market rates for this type of workshop....but only if you factor in *multiple* people attending. We expect that our target companies will have several employees who want to attend the training. Our pricing reflects this multi-seat investment. If your company doesn't have at least 2-5 developers interested in taking the course, this is probably not a good fit for your company. Instead, wait for the open source version of the course.
