I have offered training on Sakai services and tool development since the first Sakai Conference in 2004. Since that time, the size of Sakai has grown considerably and it's difficult to know where to start. I have created a set of workshops and training designed to help developers and other people get the information they need to effectively work with Sakai.

These workshops are offered in a variety of configurations and can be customized to meet your needs. They are offered in one, two, or three day formats in both lectures and hands-on development exercises. Hundreds of people have worked through these examples and presentations which are refined and kept up to date with respect to the latest Sakai releases.
