I really enjoyed the Python/ArcGIS course. For me the right balance between detail and overview. Good work!

Aleeta Zeller, Chattanooga RPA

These courses are great. I am so pressed for time this is the only way I can acquire extra skills these days. Thank you Eric for all your hard work!

Chris Hickin, NYC Fire Dept.

I have attended a number of instructor lead training courses offered by ESRI, which are great in their own right, but the Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API course gets much more in-depth than they often do. I really liked the recommended reading, they helped expand the terms being covered in lecture to concrete examples that could be related back to my work more directly instead of just having the lecture and exercises alone. I learned a lot andwill recommend this and other GeoSpatial Training courses to the GIS'ers I know. Thanks for putting this course together and offering it.

Jason Warzinik, Boone County, MO

Really good course material. Very relevant subject matter.

Michael Philp, City of Springville, UT

Definitely got me "over the hump" of being able to grasp Python.

Joseph Monti

Very informative and knowledgeable course. It help determine which direction I should take my further GIS and web programming skills.
