"Before taking the Spring Framework Programming (with Passion!)  "Training course from, I felt like Spring was too complicated for me to easily understand with out spending weeks implementing multiple spring projects, and banging my head into the wall.   The training was presented covering different parts of Spring, in a way that could be easily understood, and digested.   Each training session ended in a lab where you would extend the functionality of the covered material, thus cementing the material in you mind. After a few days, the stuff I had learned before started to fade, and I worried about how well I had learned the material.   This is one of the best parts of, I could easily go to the training material, and pull down a video recording of the training session, thus it would refresh my memory on the subject, and can be used for a reference guide anytime I approach another part of spring that I was trained on.  (vs in-class training, where you only have your notes to look at on.)   I feel that the spring training was invaluable in my present job, and I look forward to many more training sessions! Thanks so much!!!" (Mike  in Utah)

Testimonial on "Java Programming" 5-day Codecamp: Aug. 11-15, 2014

  1. "JPassion code camps - Fastest, easiest way to build real Java development skills. Perfect for those short on time, money to get what you need at the pace you need.

However, jPassion gives the direct live interaction with Professor Sang Shin that these other formats of learning don't do. In those other formats you can post a question but they may or may not answer it, and you have to wait for the answer. In jPassion Sang is very open to answering all types of questions even unrelated to the exact topic being discussed!! His material is quite in depth even when it's called Introduction or Beginner etc. It's also a great motivating factor to hear him live and try to wake up early and listen live. Thanks for these great teachings Sang.." (John S.)

Testimonials on "Ruby on Rails" 5-day Codecamp: July 21-25, 2014

  1. "In 20 years of technical training, the Java Passion courses and online classes in "code camps" are the most productive method to get real quality training on complex technologies ( Java, JEE, Grails, Ruby, Android etc ). Short of just using wikipedia and google, it's also the lowest cost option by far. I've been through and taught many commercial courses from all the large vendors and the training quality and productivity didn't match up to Java Passion education. Can't recommend the value highly enough." (Jim M.)

Thank you for taking the time to go into depth on these frameworks.. I missed some topics yesterday. When I went to the website to review them they came out great. It downloaded as an mp4 file, very clear. It didn't have the discussion part, and it skipped the time for exercises. But the lecture was fully captured and very clear. It's a great resource to review anytime!! " (John S.)
  6. "The codecamp training has been excellent and it has covered topics in great details. What amazes me the most is the in-depth coverage of topics like routing, configuration and more.  Thank you for you efforts and look forward to many more trainings on cutting edge technologies."

  8. "Awesome codecamp! IMO codecamps are great because you can ask instructor about syntax which helps you better understand and stay focused on the rest of the code samples. Also solving problems we run into during the codecamp helps to understand so much more than going through any tutorials or other learning resources." (Natalya P.)

(1) I'm a paid subscriber to jpassion like anyone else (2) I attended Web services codecamp and downloaded many other courses (3) I have 15 years hands-on Java Web development, infrastructure and architecture support. (4) I've build and delivered similar training courses, content, labs, applications to thousands (5) I've been an IBM certified technology partner on WebFacing.   Why js the best?  (1) High quality well-organized material (documentation, labs) that goes beyond the basics (2)  Excellent code camps deliver full, online, instructor-led classes with hands-on labs (3)  Very high-quality, clear instruction including review of lab materials (4) Instructor answers questions clearly, thoroughly during class (5)  Course completion certificates for students completing all course work (6) Labs are well-built, clear and easy to follow (7)  Course materials are well-maintained for technology updates and changes (8)   Course materials include presentations, hands-on lab exercises with documentation, class videos that can all be downloaded so students can use when and where needed (9)  Courses are well organized so advanced students can move productively through relevant material, labs while new students can work through all materials easily in order (10) Labs were well-organized logically to fit available class time: I could run a lab in minutes. If I needed to build it, I could spend more time where needed after class (11)  While “busy” on other, normal work, I was able to participate as needed online in code camps to upgrade my skills nicely (12)  Courses emphasize standards-based training so students are better prepared to support any vendor platform compared to more expensive, vendor training for a single product (13) Courses provide excellent references for more information on topics if you need it (14) Courses are great preparation for industry-standard certification exams (15)  The best, low cost, flexible training for those looking to build real technical skills" (Jim M.)
  4. "Hi, This was my first JPassion class. Have gained a better understanding of the subject. Thanks for taking the time to be thorough and explaining in detail. Also for making time to respond to all questions asked. Am sure I will be back for more." (A. Kadiyali)
  5. "I wanted to thank you for your time and effort in teaching a course of web services programming!

Testimonials on "Spring Framework" 5-day Codecamp: Nov. 25-27 Dec. 2-3, 2013

  1. "This has been an amazing class. I work in a Professional Services group and I teach a Development Kit class to our customers. I know the challenges of teaching to developer audiences. You have done an excellent job. You're depth and breadth of the subject matter was most impressive and the quality of the instruction materials is truly superb. I do wish we had a little more time for hands-on lab work, but given the quality of the handouts and the fact the lectures are recorded, I'm happy. Thanks." (Steven K.)
  2. "The "Spring Code Camp" is really helpful.  The instructor has a deep knowledge of the subject.  The presentation and the slides are well prepared. This is my second code-camp class.  I definitely subscribe the code-camp-classes in the future." (Quan M.)
  3. "I just finished the 5 day Spring Framework Code Camp.  Excellent Information, learned a lot that can be used at my current job. The information provided by the instructor is excellent and was able to follow along in a "LIVE" session, going over code even changing the code in my environment to play with the labs provided. Highly suggested to anyone that is beginning Spring Framework." (Andy B.)
  4. "This course covers many, if not all, aspects of Spring, with in depth knowledge from ample material and from Sang Shin and his staff. I've tried to learn from other sources and come up with presentations too brief or too complicated. Make sure to keep full attention to these presentations. Many concepts are presented at a good pace. Sang Shin does pause for thoughts to gel. Do topic prep work for lab unzips, any downloads, installs, etc. Even if you think you can, do not do homework during the presentation segment. This could risk learning from the next building concept. Spring is the best way to assist, to organize, to expose code, to introduce new approaches, and to have structure for better development, testing, revisions, security. Java Developers, at intermediate to advanced levels, should take this course in order to apply these powerful development principles." (Vonnie K.)
  5. "Great course! Taken other courses in the past, which cost a lot more.  This codecamp is a great value!!!  Material was covered in detail with lots of examples." (James B.)
  6. "Thank you for the excellent class.  Lot of information is provided with the class and I need to revisitthis again on own time to digest them.   This is the first time I am taking codecamp class, I felt that I have grasped something from the class unlike other courses which were quite difficult to comprehend." (Krishnan)
  7. "I have been a Web Developer for 10 years, best training for value you will get.  JPassion is how you become a stronger developer." (Mark M.)
  8. "Enterprise programming is a very complex topic.  Especially SPRING is so vast, extensive and difficult to grasp. JPassion courses break this down very nicely while the Code Camps allows us to practice live hands on.  The material is immensely helpful even after the code camps are done.  Thanks to Mr. Sang Shin for making these courses very affordable as well patiently responding to the questions." (Vijay B.)


Testimonials on "JavaScript, jQuery Programming" 4-day Codecamp: Oct. 15-18, 2013

  1. "I was delighted to be able to attend parts of the JavaScript and jQuery code camp.  Although I have a busy work schedule, I was able to follow along with Sang's presentations to learn much more about these two topics than I knew beforehand.  The labs were very useful in providing hands-on coding examples with which we were able to try out numerous programming constructs and techniques.  Although I didn't participate enough to learn some of the more advanced topics, such as Ajax wrappers and JavaScript Inheritance, I have come away with a much better understanding of the tools and coding practices to improve my web application programming. Thanks, Sang, for offering these useful and practical lesson and for answering  our many questions patiently and clearly. " (Bill Y.)
  2. "I have attended Mr.Sang Shin's seminar in person about a year back. He takes the most complex parts of the Javascript and presents it in a easier fashion for everyone to understand. I am glad i am able to attend the code camp and continue enhance my knowledge in the areas of JS, JQuery. The materials provided are top notch. Looking forward to attend future code camps. Thank you for doing this with real passion and immensely helping the folks like us."(Vijay B.)
  3. "I learned so much from your instruction during the four day Javascript/JQuery (+) workshop.  Your method and presentation were excellent.  The amount of material was a bit like drinking from a fire hose, but a good understanding was achieved.  I will revisit the PDFs, Labs and recordings to hone my understanding further. " (Norb W.)
  4. "This course helped me learn JavaScript and JQuery from the ground up. I will use this new knowledge on my next project. Looking forward to the next lesson on Spring MVC." (Andy)
  5. "Blow out great course. I had tried to learned Javascript many years ago, I had such frustration. Make a minor spelling error and could spend days trying to get it to work. This course introduced a wealth of validation check methods. Chrome Development Tools gives the developer all ways to know what is going on. Gave us resource links to super javascript code to include with project. Moved to advanced javascript with servers, jquery, widget. Professional websites are not just for the big corps any more.  Instructor has full knowledge of the subject. I'm so glad the presentations are recorded. I'm going to re-run them and know I will reference lab material years to come." (Vonnie K.)
  6. "I highly recommend taking Sang's code camps. I needed a refresher on Javascript and an introduction to jQuery and this code camp did not disappoint. Needless to say, I got more out of it than just a quick introduction, the code camp covered advance topics enough to point you in the right direction.Looking forward to more code camps of this nature." (Ashwin K.)
  7. " It was a pleasure to attend the live webinar on javascript. The material provided was very good and covered most of the important topics required for a software professional. Also your methodology of giving sufficient time for practicing each concept helps us to internalize what we have learnt. Hope of benefit in future webinars too." (Basheer)

Testimonials on "HTML5 Programming" 3-day Codecamp: Sep. 3-5, 2013

  1. "Though I am not completely unfamiliar with the high quality courses offered by,  this was the first live code camp I attended. Sang Shin is an instructor with extensive knowledge and a passion for teaching.   This code camp is highly accessible and Sang has the rare ability to explain even complex details , structured  in simple words, and again......  with passion.  Every question gets answered almost instantly. All HTML5 topics are covered, with enough details to get a good  overview.  Since it is all packed in just 3 days, I considered  the time given during the webinar for playing with and studying the code examples in every detail, hardly enough for some topics (WebSocket, 3D/Graphics, WebRTC e.o) .  As always the only way to develop skills and understanding is by practising many hours  afterwards . This course gave me enough confidence to start HTML5 programming, .... with passion,  thanks to" (Peter V.)
  2. "This 3 Day code camp was very hands-on for HTML5 start up for me and you provided the content in clear and understandable way." (Supraja P.)

Testimonials on 2010/2011 Codecamps

"I attended the Spring and Hibernate Code Camp and my experience and learning there has helped me get a very clear and concrete understanding of these frameworks. The camp's blend of lecture and coding sessions was a very effective methodology and the resources Sang put together for the hands-on coding sessions helped us get up-and-running from the first session itself. The practical exercises are very well laid out and the way he directed us on using the tools and technologies very clearly illustrated the core concepts and features of these technologies.

Also, I benefited very much from the "along the sidelines" discussions we had with Sang during the Code camp. Sang's many years of experience in the Java world as a technology evangelist and his immense understanding and knowledge about Java and its related technologies provided me with valuable insights into this domain and helped me address issues and questions that I had encountered during my work and projects with Java technology.."

             -B Pradhan ("Spring framework & Hibernate")

"I've attended the 5-day Spring framework and Hibernate codecamp last week and I never thought it would be such fun. I enjoyed each day of the codecamp.  Sang Shin is highly knowledgeable and takes pain  in explaining difficult concept till we get it.  I highly recommend the codecamp for anyone.  I look forward to taking more codecamps from him."

             -Rajeshwar Parsi ("Spring framework & Hibernate")

"Attending the 5-day Android programming codecamp was a real intensive and rich experience for me. The instructor is a great helper and smooth teacher. The codecamp material, especially the hands on lab are pretty detailed, well organized, very helpful and straight forward for understanding the concept and then exercise them. The course was a huge step for me to get into android development, and I'm glad I've attended the codecamp."

             -Sinar Shebl ("Android Programming")

"Excellent as usual.. Extremely useful and very good material and discussion. Thanks Sang Shin."

             -Noha Mahmoud ("Android Programming")

"Android codecamp from was a great opportunity to learn a new and popular technology. The course is comprehensive and contains almost everything you need to learn about Android if you are testing on the emulator. This codecamp has taught me a lot of new concepts whether they be related to android or other fields. The experience of learning and taking a course at itself was great and was definitely worth the time and effort. Thank you.

            -Sherin Farid ("Android Programming")

"The course is chock full of practical information, immediately reinforced by thoroughly thought-out exercises.  The instructor is indeed a gifted lecturer, who can patiently and continually reformulate and repackage difficult concepts until the students 'get it'.  I can think of no better value for the training dollar."

             -Cris L. ("Web services and SOA programming")

"I found the course to be extremely informative. The contents are well organized and the labs are a superb learning tool because each step is shown. If you're hoping to get into Web services and/or SOA, this is the course to take."

             -D. F. ("Web services and SOA programming")
              KFLA Public Health

"This is the best resource for learning Java programming.  The material is thorough and well-detailed, yet concise.  The Web Services and SOA Programming bootcamp was a huge springboard in my career as a middleware developer and in my personal persuits in Java development."

             - J. C., Middleware/Java Developer
               Deloitte Consulting

This course is intensive. The material is presented well and the labs are very informative and give a basis from which to start a project. The course is fast paced; wish it had been two weeks for my own comfort."

             - John G. ("Web services and SOA programming")

The 5-day Web Services and SOA code camp was a fun and fast way to learn all about Web Services and SOA. The class lectures and labs were a great preparation for the final day topics of SOA and ESB. Sang Shin answered all of my questions with clear explanations and examples in order to make sure that I was able to understand the presentations. I have a better understanding of Java Web Services and SOA because of the enjoyable and educational discussions that developed from the presentations. The labs for the class reinforced how to implement the material that was presented. Now, I am capable of implementing RESTful web services as well as SOAP based Web Services and BPEL modules that I can use to create composite applications to deploy on an ESB.
