So if you or someone you know needs to learn how to use and program Siemens PLCs, you may want to signup prior to the coming price increase. For full information about the course, click here.

Next up we have several podcasts, the first being just release epsiode of The Automation Podcast in which I interview Curt Anderson about how he helps Manufacturers implement eCommerce on their websites, often times paid for using Government Grants. You can view or listen to the podcast here.
