Hi folks! My name is Luke Yarnall, and I am the facilitator for the August 2018 section of this course.
A bit about you:
I'd like to learn a bit about you all! Please comment on this thread with a brief description of yourself, what you want to learn in this course, and anything else you'd like to share. Please also share your time zone so that I can find the best times to do live office hours next week.
A bit about me:
I am a Product Support Engineer in our Developer Technologies support group here at OSIsoft -- I've been working in Product Support for a little over two years, so if you've contacted us at OSIsoft Tech Support very many times, there's a good chance we've talked at least once!
My main goal for the course is to give you the first tools to feel comfortable with the basics needed to develop your own applications with the PI Web API. As secondary goals, I want to point you in the right direction to be able to find more resources to solve whatever challenges come up as you develop applications in the future -- whether it's as simple as finding the right documentation, or whether it's participating in the discussions that come up on our developers' forum, PI Developers Club.
A bit about the course:
You can find the lecture material and additional information at the course page here: Programming in PI Web API
Please post any questions that come up in the Programming in PI Web API discussion forum -- it's better if it's posted publicly because oftentimes multiple people have similar questions.
If you don't want to post in the forum for some reason (e.g. you need to include some proprietary information in your question), then you can send me an email. I'll be reaching out to you all by email soon.
Officially, the course started on Monday, August 6th and runs through Friday, August 24th -- three weeks to work through the lecture material. However, since I was late in setting up the course space, I will not be strictly enforcing the original deadline for project submissions. If you are going to be wrapping up a bit late, please just reach out to me and let me know.
