This contract programmer pilot fish likes to sweeten the deal for prospective clients by offering “value-added services” — including training for other developers.
“One service I offer is Oracle PL/SQL programming training,” says fish. “After a year at one company, the IT director asked me to provide training to their development staff, which consisted largely of C/C++ programmers and Fortran mainframe programmers.”
Fish tailors the training to match the kinds of real-world programming problems that the developers are likely to hit with the the company’s Oracle system, which is intended to eventually replace the native mainframe database applications.
