Mission Statement

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality Java courseware and training services for software developers throughout the world. As a service, we have chosen to focus on the Java language because we recognize that Java offers unparalleled power and unfettered flexibility in its 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.
