sorry I can only vote once...
2) Howard Greenberg37 (07 Dec 2010)
TLCC already has an Advanced XPage course that has much of this...

3) Peter Presnell26659 (10 Dec 2010)
I would say not a course, but an actual book that builds on the one IBM is releasing in January.

Hi all,
Thanks for your feedback. We are moving forward with an Advanced XPage course.

The proposed outline has changed somewhat. In addition to the ideas above, we're planning to add a section on Advanced Dojo Controls.
