Welcome everyone!

Welcome to the Learning Services Community.    Learning Services includes product training and related material, documentation, videos and online learning.    We're in the process or organizing our material to provide you with "learning paths" for topics that you might want to explore, develop new skills, or achieve certification as an expert.  This will you learn about our products anywhere, anytime and at your convenience.   

There will be a lot more information coming and I encourage you to go to Learning.InterSystems.com to explore the online course offerings available for you already, free of charge.

And, I'm very interested about your experiences in learning.

This is definitely something that the community, and InterSystems, needed. Since the language is not taught in schools, rarely used, and hidden as it's the backbone of some major applications, many developers, like myself, are not, if ever, usually introduced to it.

When I began, I was told its sort of like C and nothing like PHP/JS, but I needed to develop a payment application for a website that integrated with the DB. After lots of trial and error, reading high-level (understandable, but quite difficulty when never exposed to it) technical documents, and time, I did produce the application. Since, I've enjoyed the power it has, but wished the community was larger.

I am glad to see learning opportunities becoming available to increase its exposure and the community. The more people apart of our community, the quicker we expand and develop things for our IoT and Big Data issues.
