2004 Getting Started with Epics Lecture Videos

ASD Controls and AOD BCDA have coordinated a series of lectures entitled "Getting Started with EPICS." 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.

Click on the lecture title for a summary of content, copies of the session handout, and PowerPoint slides.

An integrated video and slides presentation, created using SofTV, is available for these lectures. SofTV requires Netscape 7.1+ or IE 6.0+. If you do not meet the SofTV viewer requirements, Real video and PDF slides of the presentation are also provided.
