LearningPatterns has been providing premier training and mentoring in Java and other advanced technologies since 1995. We are now solely focused on licensing our training courseware, and no longer offer training directly. Our high-quality materials allow you to provide your clients with the just-in-time knowledge and skills transfer they need to deliver real-world projects. Our hands-on training material provides software developers with the skills they require to accomplish today’s greatest development challenges.
LearningPatterns is expert in the technologies we cover, and has enormous experience in the training space and in creating training materials. This unique strength, focus, and depth of talent enables you to help your clients build the technology teams that are creating their future. We are living our vision of creating quality, cutting-edge material that will enable companies to meet the challenges they face. We look forward to the challenges and discoveries that the future will bring, and affirm our commitment to helping our clients realize their full potential.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality training materials for technology professionals throughout the world. We recognize that the technologies we are involved with offer unparalleled power and unfettered flexibility in their ability to create the applications which humanity needs now in order to most effectively share information and knowledge. We recognize that people are infinitely more important than the computers which they have created as tools.
Therefore, we are dedicated to enabling creative people to work with the most powerful tools so that each one can most effectively contribute their greatest gifts to the whole. Ultimately, we are creating a place where people can offer their strengths in service of humanity.
