Getting Started with Epics Lecture Series at APS

The ASD Controls and AOD BCDA groups at Argonne National Laboratory coordinated a series of lectures entitled "Getting Started with EPICS" in 2004-2005. The lectures were grouped in sessions targeted towards those interested in using EPICS tools, those interested in developing EPICS-enabled programs, and those interested in working with EPICS Input/Output Controller (IOC) software.

All of the lectures were recorded and have been made available as an integrated video and slide presentation using SofTV (this is the best way to view them if you can use it). In case your browser does not meet the SofTV viewer requirements, Real Video and PDF slides of the presentation are also provided [Linux users will need RealPlayer - HelixPlayer doesn't work].
