My school/JUG wants to teach Java and NetBeans, do you offer an academic program?
NetBeans Education Project
Your JUG, middle school, high-school or university wants to offer programming classes? We suggest to use the NetBeans IDE together with our free training materials!
Contact us at users AT edu.netbeans.org and join the growing community of teachers who use NetBeans in the classroom. Ask questions, share resources, and get connected.
