A lot of people have subscribed to the upcoming REST/JSON trainings, thanks for that! To make the training useful and as interactive as possible, we had to allocate three training days.

There will be two days in Vilvoorde at the InterSystems office:

  • 06/10/2015 (no seats left)

There will also be one training in Amsterdam on 13/10/2015 (no seats left).

Currently all sessions are fully booked and there are no more seats available for the REST/JSON training!

If you subscribed to one of these training days, you will be informed by e-mail about location and time.
