We tried to offer classes in Santa Clara, CA (and may do so again), but
didn't have sufficient demand to run them. There were 2 people that had
expressed interest in that class. However, I will say that in 2006 that
was the only class we canceled (keep in mind though, that we run courses
at our headquarters *regardless* of the number of students enrolled -
it's our policy to not cancel classes here...)
On another note, I will say that we're doing well enough to support the
project through SPI...
To cure the shortage of experienced Postgres folks there is only one
solution - err, more experience! So the need is for good training
courses (not necessarily certification and all the IMHO nonsense that
comes with that), and a willingness on the part of employers to invest
in upskilling their staff.
You know its funny. Command Prompt, OTG-Inc, SRA and Big Nerd Ranch
*all* offer training.
Last I checked, OTG had to cancel classes because of lack of demand
(please verify Chander).
Command Prompt currently only trains corps with 12+ people per class so
we are a bit different.
