Update: the class is cancelled. I guess there weren’t that many people interested in COM this time around.
Today I’m opening registration for the COM Programming class to be held in April. The syllabus for the 3 day class can be found here. The course will be delivered in 6 half-days (4 hours each).
Dates: April (25, 26, 27, 28), May (2, 3).
Times: 2pm to 6pm, London time
Cost: 700 USD (if paid by an individual), 1300 USD (if paid by a company).
The class will be conducted remotely using Microsoft Teams or a similar platform.
What you need to know before the class: You should be comfortable using Windows on a Power User level. Concepts such as processes, threads, DLLs, and virtual memory should be understood fairly well. You should have experience writing code in C and some C++. You don’t have to be an expert, but you must know C and basic C++ to get the most out of this class. In case you have doubts, talk to me.
Participants in my Windows Internals and Windows System Programming classes have the required knowledge for the class.
We’ll start by looking at why COM was created in the first place, and then build clients and servers, digging into various mechanisms COM provides. See the syllabus for more details.
Previous students in my classes get 10% off. Multiple participants from the same company get a discount (email me for the details).
To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “COM Training”, and write the name(s), email(s) and time zone(s) of the participants.
