Student Comments

"I have enjoyed the class (Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API).  I like working at my own pace through the materials, between the other things I am working on.  The examples are clear, and I appreciate that I will be able to go back and refer to them during my development efforts.  The advanced dojo section seems like a deep topic, and I see myself referring back to that section and the other dojo resources as I am developing.  Finally, I am glad that I was able to get this training in a cost-effective manner.  It is difficult to get training classes up here in Alaska.  Often we have to get on a plane and leave the state.  As much as I enjoy travelling, it may not be the fiscally responsible thing to do in this era of strained budgets.  This training format seems to work, and I hope to participate in more of these in the future." -- Erick Johnson, GISP, GIS Programming/Analyst - Matanuska - Susitna Borough
