Some previous RCP Quickstart clients have been kind enough to provide a written review of the course. Others would be more than happy to discuss their experiences with the course by phone or email.
“Great course! Excellent materials and presentations. I can take what I learned and start applying it directly to my current project. Patrick provided great depth on the topics that were covered and was able to discuss off-topic areas as well. There is no question that Patrick knew what he was talking about. His technical expertise in the area was reflected in all areas of the course and everything was done very professionally.”
“I am quite impressed with Patrick’s technical expertise. He has demonstrated the ability to take a complex subject like RCP and break it down into easy understandable steps. Without this course I don’t think we would have been able to finish our project on time.”

“RCP Quickstart is a winner. The class did a great job of spanning the breadth and depth of the Eclipse platform, but the highlight of the class was its effective use of labs. Each of the ten sessions (five morning, five afternoon) were evenly split between lecture and lab, and each lab not only applied the concepts from the preceding lecture, but built naturally upon the prior lab.”
“We hired Patrick Paulin to teach the RCP Quickstart Course to 13 developers over 3 days and then for RCP consulting for the last 2 days of the week. One of our developers had deep knowledge of RCP before the course and everyone else was brand new to it. The course was worth every penny.
The course material was extremely well organized and Patrick presented it very clearly. He was able to explain RCP in simple enough terms for all the newbies to understand it, but he has so much technical depth that our experienced RCP developer was able to ask advanced questions and got some valuable information out of the course too.
For 2 days Patrick worked with our experienced RCP developer. He made suggestions for ways we could layout our RCP code better to make future development easier and give us more flexibility in the future. Patrick is just a really nice guy and really easy to work with.
If you are developing an RCP application and need someone to shorten the learning curve for your developers, or you want some expert advice on how to structure your application, Patrick is an excellent choice.”

“The RCP Quickstart course was everything we hoped it would be. The mix of presented material and hands-on labs hit on all of the key areas and were structured in very digestible segments. Both those already familiar with the platform as well as those just starting came away with an increased comfort level in the technology. Patrick presented the material with an expert knowledge of the concepts and backed it up with consulting experiences. Too often this type of training lacks a real-world and best-practice perspective. Patrick makes it a point to not just regurgitate api documentation but highlight features both good and bad and explain clearly how you use them to build successful applications. I would highly recommend this course to anyone building Eclipse RCP applications.”

“We engaged Patrick Paulin of Syntax Consulting to present his course on Eclipse RCP (RCP Quickstart) to our group of developers. Of the 6 people attending only one had some knowledge of RCP, the others were new to both RCP and Java.
The course material was comprehensive yet presented in a way that allowed all attendees to follow the concepts being presented. Patrick’s in-depth knowledge of and experience with RCP also allowed our more experienced developer to gain a deeper understanding and insight into the more advanced topics of RCP. Patrick has an easy going style that allowed our developers to feel relaxed and comfortable.
We engaged Patrick for a further two days after the course to help us better understand how we could best position our new project within the RCP framework.
If you’re new to RCP and need a ‘jumpstart’ or are looking for an experienced RCP architect/resource then I highly recommend Patrick.”

“Patrick helped me with Best Practices in RCP applications and showed me several tricks of the trade. This was instrumental in getting my first RCP project correctly on track. We used a remote desktop sharing and teleconferencing setup that worked great and saved travel costs. I recommend Patrick’s expertise to anyone who is looking to jump start their RCP application development process.”
