From the press release:
"This alliance is aimed at expanding market share for both companies and positioning for joint growth," said Salil Deshpande, CEO at The Middleware Company. "Both companies benefit from increased visibility as DevelopMentor gains The Middleware Company's best-of-breed training assets, as well as unprecedented, regular exposure to nearly half a million new developers and architects via the TheServerSide Communities. The Middleware Company gains a significant boost in membership and additional middleware content on TheServerSide Communities, contributed by DevelopMentor. Ultimately the entire middleware industry benefits from better training and services as a result of our collaboration."In the immediate future we can expect to see more new content from DevelopMentor appearing on TheServerSide, including tutorials, downloadable books by DevelopMentor authors, articles and the active discussion lists at discuss.develop.com.
As part of the alliance, The Middleware Company will exclusively host, manage and promote DevelopMentor's online community elements including the DevelopMentor Resources area technical content and discuss.develop.com on TheServerSide Communities. DevelopMentor will acquire and integrate The Middleware Company's training business including EJB for Architects, EJB Essentials, J2EE Design Patterns and J2EE Essentials into its offerings. In addition, DevelopMentor and TheServerSide Communities will collaborate to produce online course services including course-specific discussion forums and resource areas as well as new and unique technical content such as books, whitepapers and sample applications.
"TheServerSide Communities will now become our community front end, further extending DevelopMentor's reach within the developer community. The added functionality resulting from the migration of our community assets to TheServerSide will benefit developers who learn from our instructors as well as those that rely on online resources," said Mike Abercrombie, president and CEO at DevelopMentor. "Teaming with The Middleware Company will reinforce our position as the premier advanced developer training firm with the most comprehensive curriculum spanning J2EE and .NET."
