Alfresco Training Course

This training will allow participants to understand what it is possible to do with the system and to make appropriate and informed decisions about when to deploy the technology and how to deploy the technology.

Through a blend of sessions, demonstrations, working examples and labs the participant will become familiar with Alfresco technology, architecture, and learn when and where it should be applied.

In order for participants to understand how development is carried out we also look at the alternative options of configuring, customizing and developing with Alfresco.

This training includes administration, maintenance & migration, customization and development using web scripts and share configuration in a 4 days scattered intensive class.

It will help participants to take functional and technical requirements, and implement those as Alfresco configuration or customizations, or perhaps building whole new applications on the Alfresco content server.
