New UK office offers technical training to European developers and IT Professionals
May 19, 2008 – Minneapolis, MN – AppDev, an award-winning, technical learning company, announced
the opening of West Sussex, England offices to best serve developers and IT professionals in Europe.
While AppDev has been selling globally for years, adding offices and staff in England reflect AppDev’s
commitment to excellence in customer service and support and delivering the highest quality Microsoft
training across Europe.
“We had been looking for someone who had a strong background and understanding of Microsoft
products, experience working with developers and IT professionals in Europe, and whose commitment to
customer service was in synch with AppDev’s high standards to open the AppDev Europe office,” says
CEO and President Craig Jensen. “Neil Slater’s 18 years in IT sales, his proven track record with
components vendor FarPoint Technologies, and his team of European-based professionals are a perfect fit
for AppDev Europe.”
According to Jensen and Slater, the increasing demand for Microsoft developer training in Europe and the
U.S. is growing exponentially. “This opportunity to bring respected industry training products from a
company with a long-standing history is timely,” reports Neil Slater. “IT professionals all over Europe
are looking for quality training that will get them up to speed on new software and help them effectively
use their existing software on new projects. That’s what AppDev Europe brings to the market.”
Existing customers such as Paul Mooney in Dublin, Ireland have used AppDev training for several years.
Mooney finds “…the depth and breadth of AppDev courses provide a great level of training which I have
found lacking in other training programs. The customer support at AppDev is fantastic.” Jensen and
Slater agree that the timing couldn’t be better to open the AppDev Europe office.
AppDev’s award-winning, self-paced in-depth, real-world training is available in multiple formats
including CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, KSource Online Learning™ and customizable ILT courseware.
