Kitware Courses Move to Webinar Format

Kitware announced free monthly online introductory courses in September 2011, and within days all four scheduled courses for VTK, CMake, ParaView, and ITK were filled. To better handle the community demand, Kitware has switched to a webinar format allowing up to 100 attendees per session. The following sessions now have additional availability:

Introduction to CMake
November 9, 2011, 10:00-11:30 a.m. EST
This webinar has already happened - view the recorded session.

This course provides an introduction to the CMake cross-platform build tool used by many open-source and commercial development projects world-wide. Using a tutorial format, this course introduces the concept of the basic CMakeLists configuration file for a simple project, then expands upon this to cover setting include paths, adding libraries, having version numbers and configured header files, installing the resulting binaries, testing, and reporting testing results on a dashboard.

 

Introduction to ParaView
December 14, 2011, 9:30-11:00 a.m. EST
This webinar has already happened - view the recorded session.

This course provides a hands-on overview of the ParaView visualization application. The basic interactive visual exploration process is demonstrated, including data loading, data processing, adjusting parameters and data interaction. Key concepts such as cutting, clipping, contouring, probing, and glyphing are discussed in this course. This course provides examples of generating output in the form of processed data, rendered images, and animations.

 

Introduction to ITK
January 18, 2012, 3:30-5:00 p.m. EST
This webinar has already happened - view the recorded session.

This course introduces new ITK users to the Insight toolkit. It covers the overall architecture, execution pipeline, streaming, and data parallelism. Basic filtering and segmentation are covered, and this course also touches upon the Registration pipeline. Attendees get hands on experience using image analysis filters, and running registration and segmentation filters. Examples on interfacing ITK with external applications, building ITK applications with a user interface, and using ITK from various interpreted languages are also covered.

 

Note that the course will be run using GoToWebinar which runs only on Windows and Mac platforms. Early registration is encouraged. Questions on these courses, or custom online or onsite courses should be directed to courses@kitware.com.
