  7. 7. sf2001.jsp MEMBERSHIPS: Faculty of University of Phoenix and DeVry University CERTIFICATION: Sun Certified Java Architect Sun Certified Java Instructor Sun Certified Java Programmer Cycorp Inc. Certified in Ontological (Knowledge) Engineering Certified by University of Phoenix in Critical Thinking Methods Certified TOGAF 8 by Open Management Group US Citizen Consulting/training feedback: Mr. Zhuk brings the wealth and depth of years of Java development and training experience. His willingness and ability to adapt this course from a standard, textbook driven approach, to one that tied the classical Java language instruction to our real-world challenges was impressive and well received. I consider this the best training investment I’ve made for my staff in over 15 years of Software Engineering management. - Jay DiGiovanni, Director of Software Development, TV Guide Jeff was able to explain complex concepts of EJBs and messaging beans and apply them immediately to our current tasks. - DOD development team, EJB programming with Weblogic From the book and seminar reviews: web/books "This book was very solid technically, and a fascinating read. On the development side, it is filled with ideas and examples, some of which showed me completely different approaches to common problems. Conceptually, the book is even richer, not only explaining complex technologies in simple ways, but showing how some seemingly unrelated technological developments from the past few years can fit and work together. Overall, I think the book's most worthwhile aspect is the way it married its overall vision, which anticipates the future of integration and knowledge-driven computing, with very specific design and code examples that I could incorporate into my practice right away.
