 Arete Systems Authors Visual Interdev Course for IBM

(Midlothian, VA) Arete Systems, a software training and development firm located in the Richmond, Virginia area, has been chosen by the Learning Services Division of IBM Corporation to author the newest course in the IBM Microsoft training series.

"Visual Interdev 6 - Designing and Implementing Web Solutions" is the third course in the IBM Education for Microsoft Technologies series. The previous courses covered the fundamentals and advanced features of the Visual Basic programming language.

David Clark, principal of Arete Systems, stated that "we're pleased and honored to be selected by IBM to develop their Visual Interdev course. IBM's approach to developing their Microsoft Technologies courses is unique and effective for students and trainers."

Visual Interdev is Microsoft's premier tool for developing web applications. It and Microsoft's Front Page web authoring tool are Microsoft's major products for developing web sites.

The course will be four days long, and is geared for site developers who perform architectural planning, technology selection, or Web development tasks. It will be offered at IBM Training Center locations world-wide.
