Good morning fellow Shruggers,

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I wanted to let you know we still
have a couple of seats open for the GIS Programming 101: Mastering
Python for ArcGIS class we have scheduled next week. This class is for
anyone interested in learning about how to use Python scripts to
automate processes in ArcGIS.  Below is a more detailed course
description. If you know anyone interested please pass this along.


GIS Programming 101: Mastering Python for ArcGIS


Dates: August 23 - 25, 2011

Location: Keck & Wood Training Center, Duluth, GA



This 3 day course is designed to teach the fundamental programming
constructs of the Python language and how it can be integrated with
ArcGIS Desktop to automate geoprocessing tasks.  Course participants
will be led through a series of 12 modules covering topics such as basic
Python language features, the Geoprocessor ArcObject and its associated
classes, creation of dynamic scripts which can be added to ArcToolbox,
error handling techniques, and many others. 


Target Audience:

This course is for experienced ArcGIS users that are looking to learn
how Python scripts can be created to automate processes. Some basic
computer programming knowledge is recommended but you don't need to be
an expert programmer. 


Course Goals:

After successfully completing this course users will have acquired a
number of new skills related to Geoprocessing with Python. These new
skills include: 


*	Fundamental understanding of the Python programming language. 
*	How to write Python scripts to do geoprocessing tasks such as
buffer, clip, overlay, insert, update, and delete rows from a table or
feature class, and any other system tool provided by ArcToolbox. 
*	How to create custom toolboxes in ArcToolbox 
*	How to read the Geoprocessor Object Model Diagram 
*	How to write dynamic scripts that can be attached to ArcToolbox.

*	Understanding of the Geoprocessor ArcObject and how it controls
access to the geoprocessing objects. 



The cost to attend this three day class is $1,350.00. Discounts are
available for organizations that send 2 or more student or that bundle
this class with other training courses.  To register fill out the
