IDL Programming Techniques Training Course

IDL Programming Techniques is a four-day course for those who want a comprehensive overview of IDL functionality, programming, and application development. The course concentrates on programming and graphical display techniques that are required to build both static and interactive IDL programs. Highly interactive, widget and object programs are emphasized. The course is suitable for those who have been working with IDL for some time and who want to move their IDL programming skills to the next level.

Each course is tailored specifically to the interests and abilities of the course participants. Feel free to bring your own data to use in the various examples and programming exercises. It is expected that each participant will leave the course with an IDL application program that he or she can use in their own IDL work. Each course participant receives a PDF copy of my IDL programming manual, IDL Programming Techniques.

Depending upon the level of the students, it is almost always required that we spend a day or two covering the basic material in the IDL Essentials course, so I have included that information here. We do this as quickly as we can, and in much less depth, so we can move onto the programming aspects of the course. If students are proficient in this aspect of their IDL knowledge, then this overview is done very quickly and the majority of the time is spent writing IDL programs of greater complexity.
