Versioned Workflows a True Story

As a long time GIS trainer working for Esri Australia, I have taught a lot of courses over the past 10 or so years. In my opinion, one of the best would have to be Implementing Versioned Workflows in a Multiuser Geodatabase. A three day course designed to cover the version related content in Esri’s current course curriculum.

I know the title sounds a little intimidating and I will not lie, some of the content is quite advanced.

However the way topics are introduced and explained visually, the continuity between the scenarios and the way we are taken on exploratory journey through the repository of the multiuser geodatabase leave students with a thorough understanding of its mechanics.

Forgetting that the scenarios are based in and around Fargo, North Dakota, the course progressively and comprehensively takes the students through a number of various real life workflows exposing how the functionality provided in a geodatabase has been implemented. After students perform functions from ArcMap as a user they then explore the changes to the SDE repository as an administrator.

After sitting this course for the first time not only did I walk away with a better understanding of alternative methods of implementing a multiuser geodatabase, but also the impact of the various approaches including the advantages and disadvantages of each.

The next Implementing Versioned Workflows in a Multiuser Geodatabase will be in Brisbane on the 8-10/3/2016.
