Philip Greenspun is teaching a course in Web Application design on Oct 2nd and 3rd at NYU in Greenwich. The course is free! I went to his class at MIT and found it to be very good. He's also looking for developers for ArsDigita, his Web design firm.

Details are included in the following e-mail.

Remember my one-day course on Web application design? (http://photo.net/teaching/one-day-web.html) I'm doing it again. Please send email to your friends in New York City suggesting that they come on October 2 or 3. The course is free and will be held at NYU in Greenwich Village. They can register at http://register.photo.net

For your friends in the Boston area, I'm also doing the course again on October 23 at MIT. Again, reserve a spot at http://register.photo.net

For yourself, consider coming to our ArsDigita Community System tutorial and users group meeting, October 24 at MIT: http://photo.net/teaching/one-day-acs.html

You'll meet lots of other folks who are building Web services starting with our free open-source toolkit. Some of them are doing great things for the world, others are banking their $millions in venture capital. You will have a chance to influence the direction of the toolkit (hinted at in http://photo.net/acsplans/ ) and find out about interesting new features, e.g., we added file attachment/photo upload capability to all of the comment systems.

If you're an experienced software engineer, you might want to attend our three-week boot camp: http://photo.net/teaching/boot-camp.html Currently scheduled dates: October 4-24 and November 29-December 17.

Not convenient? Get your local university to adopt our one-semester course from MIT. Five schools (including Caltech and MIT) are teaching it. All of the materials are available for free from http://photo.net/teaching/one-term-web.html

Speaking of good software engineers, if you know any who'd like to make a significant contribution to software for Web-based collaboration and education, have them look at http://arsdigita.com/jobs.html (sorry to sound desperate but we're at $10 million in revenue, doubling every six months, and our current staff of 40 developers won't stretch to accomodate all of the work).
