— a for-profit, on-demand, Web-based school offering university certification — plans on tweaking their Mac OS X Developer track of classes in lieu of the approach of Panther.
Panther is the codename for the next major revamp of Mac OS X. Attendees of Apple’s
Worldwide Developers Conference
will be among the first to see Panther in action when the conference opens. Originally scheduled for May 19-23, 2003 in San Jose, the conference has been moved to the Moscone Center in San Francisco from June 23-27, in order to provide developers with a more complete preview release.
“In the wake of the announcement from Apple that Panther is on the way, we are working to update all our Mac OS X Developer courses,” said Cameron Barrett, vice president of education for R/com Networks, the company that owns MediaSchool. “So we’ve put our current classes on sale and are busy updating code, applications, and other elements of the classes as we prepare for Panther’s arrival.”
Course updates will be ready a few weeks after the 2003 WWDC. In the meantime, MediaSchool’s Mac OS X Developer classes are being discounted, with Apple Developer Connection (ADC) members receiving 50 percent off sales prices. Go to the MediaSchool Web site for details.
R/com, the company behind MediaSchool, provides both individual virtual seminars and complete university certification in Web design, video production, music composition, and New Media authoring. The company also designed the Web portal and online learning environment of the International Music Products Association.
