Scripting training

Apago will be holding a one day hands-on seminar on advanced scripting concepts with XML, SQL and Javascript during Graph Expo 2016. We had great feedback from last two seminars and will be incorporating more hands-on exercises. Bring your list of questions and requirements and we will work through them.

The training will be held Tuesday 27th, 9am to 4pm.
Cost: $1,250 for one, $2,000 for two ($500 discount).

Remote students are welcome to sign up. We will have video and audio connectivity to the classroom.

No Javascript experience is required. This class will cover the basics of the JavaScript language and then move on to Switch specific topics including metadata, XML and SQL. Computers will be provided loaded with Switch and Pitstop Server.

Attendees will take home a USB flash drive full of example flows, scripts and Javascript snippets. Worth the admission price alone!
