ESRI Workbook for Python Scripting

Idea created by Jake_Diebolt on Jul 29, 2010

    ESRI should produce a workbook (or a series of workbooks) for Python scripting in ArcGIS. This would allow colleges and universities to have a solid workbook for their courses, and make for easier and cheaper training of GIS technicians without programming experience. Not everyone can afford the $1500 ESRI campus course, but everyone could benefit from a little scripting knowledge.


    Every once in a while, someone asks for something like this on the forums, and i know I would love having a desktop reference/tutorial for scripting, especially with ArcGIS 10 incorporating so much Python.
