Our goal is to produce sets of development documentation and sample code to facilitate Sakai tool development. The idea is to allow a programmer with basic knowledge of Java to go through these tutorials and end up equipped to write a Sakai tool.
We also plan to present day long workshops (called bootcamps) at each major Sakai conference. The cafe bootcamps are intensive day long workshops consisting of presentations and exercises designed to help developers get up to speed developing tools/apps for the Sakai framework. The bootcamps are also intended as a way to present new development technologies and best practices and techniques to developers who are experienced in Java and Sakai development.
