We're back to Vegas for 2015, and we couldn't be more escited to see all our Eclipse friends and family, and hopefully meet some new folks out there too! We had such a great experience holding our event at the SkyView Meeting Space on the top floor of the Bally's hotel in 2014, that we're headed straight back with some fresh ideas to make this year as amazing as possilbe!

The ESP Users' Group has been helping Eclipse users learn about their software and have fun for 23 years, providing instruction from the most interesting and experienced trainers in the industry. This is our 23nd year and our lineup is better than ever with 16+ hours of dedicated Eclipse training. Those who attend for all three days can earn a whopping 2.2 CEUs! Or if you can only make it for the weekend, you can earn 1.4 CEUs.

The meeting rooms will be on the 26th floor of the North Tower in Bally’s. This area is called the Skyview for good reason. Perched at the top of the tower it offers wonderful views through windows in the foyer, hallway and some of the meeting rooms. Let there be light! For those of you not familiar with the Paris/Bally’s complex, the two hotels are joined and the walk from Paris to Bally’s is about five minutes. The time it will take to walk from a hotel room at Paris to the Skyview meeting rooms is about ten minutes.

IMPORTANT HOTEL BOOKING INFORMATION. PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING YOUR STAY! Clicking the link below will take you directly to the hotel reservation system. By default, it looks like Bally's is the only hotel listed as having rooms available - THIS IS NOT THE CASE, WE HAVE PLENTY OF ROOMS IN BOTH HOTELS FOR OUR ATTENDEES! Once you click the link below, do one of two things. Find the button on the right side of that page that looks like the picture shown to the right of this paragraph and CLICK "AS LIST". The next page that appears will allow you to choose the hotel you want to stay at. Or enter the dates and click the FIND button. You will be shown rates for both Paris and Bally's.

Eclipse Track Training

TWO DAYS OF ECLIPSE TRACK TRAINING, FRIDAY & SATURDAY

Steve Kosmata, Keith Vincent, and Jeremy Thorne will be teaching the Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced classes. Collectively these three stalwarts have taught literally thousands of Eclipse users at these events across a span of over two decades. No one does it better.


Jeremy Thorne
Advanced Training

Jeremy is the man who created Eclipse and you’d think a guy who writes code all day might be a little dull behind a podium. Not Jeremy. He’s interesting, witty and, as you’d expect, extremely knowledgeable. He’s also known for plowing through a lot of material in short order, so buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Keith Vincent
Intermediate Training

Keith Vincent, author of the Visualizer training videos found everywhere in Eclipse, is a long-time Eclipse user, trainer, and tester. He has worked closely with Jeremy for 20 years to help test and shape new features in Eclipse. He’s also an accomplished speaker who has given dozens of webinars and seminars around the world. Keith knows his subject and how to teach it.
