Live Training Testimonials

You’re the best programming teacher I’ve ever had. I took two programming classes in college and neither of the teachers broke the subject down and explained every line of code like you do.

Alex B.,

Great intro to SolidWorks API. Extremely helpful to have the object hierarchies explained versus having to try to reverse-engineer the steps from a zillion API Help entries. Also really enjoyed the personal flair that Keith brings to his craft. Keith has helped me achieve my 15-year-old goal of learning the SolidWorks API. I now feel like, given sufficient time, I could write any macro anybody would need!

Jason P., CAPINC

I used my new API skills in combination with DriveWorks a couple of weeks ago. I am amazed at how much easier it is now that I understand the API Help and API object model. Loved the interaction between peers and instructor.
