Jonathan sent me an email that he will be teaching a tutorial on Java ME programming at OOPSLA in October. The details from his email follow:

Title: Using Java ME to Program Your Mobile Phone
Time & Date: Monday, October 22, 1:30 PM
Duration: 3.5 hours
Location: Montreal

It’ll be a very hands-on class, complete with labs. We’ll be building a simple client for Yahoo Maps. Please go ahead and sign up if you’d like a quick, practical introduction to MIDP application programming.

I’m not an expert on OOSPLA registration, but it looks like the cost of the tutorial is $470, but free for students. Check the web site for the details.

The list of presenters this year at OOPSLA is impressive. Take a browse through the OOPSLA web site for more information:

The material in my tutorial is based on a new book about MIDP and MSA. We’re hoping to have it in print by the end of this year. In the meantime, you can check out my still-evolving web site, which includes a table of contents, some screen shots, and code downloads:

Jonathan is a superb author on Java ME, and the table of contents of his new book “Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA” shows that is a very solid and complete book.
