We want you to feel confident using and developing our open source tools. If you are applying our software to your project or workflow, we can provide training to help you get there. Kitware’s training courses provide the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of our open source platforms through interactive, hands-on lessons. Taught by one of the platform developers, courses apply to domain experts and software developers alike.
We offer different training options based on your needs. We hold scheduled training courses throughout the year and can also create a custom course specifically for your team.
Our custom courses are tailored to your expertise level and needs. This personalized training will specifically align with your use case, increasing your mastery of Kitware’s open source platforms. In addition to determining the course objectives, you can schedule when and where the training will take place. Custom courses can be held at your location, in our offices, or online.
Kitware provides scheduled training courses throughout the year. These courses include a detailed explanation of how our platforms work and how to efficiently apply them to your projects. Our training mixes theory and application with a set of tutorials and exercises. Kitware’s upcoming scheduled courses are listed below, but you can also contact us if you’re interested in a more personalized training session for your team.
This course will focus on teaching the fundamental concepts of Computational Model Builder (CMB) and the Simulation Model ToolKit (SMTK) which (along with ParaView and VTK) CMB applications are based on. In the course you will learn how to model and export information required by simulations, mesh generators, or other pre-processing tools using SMTK’s attribute resource, views, and operation infrastructure.
This CMake training covers how to efficiently write CMake scripts for small to larger projects along with best practices. This training also provides an overview of unit testing with CTest, packaging with CPack and continuous integration with CDash.
This course shows how to create or wrap an image processing or ML workflow so that it can be used by the HistomicsTK / Digital Slide Archive platform, generating editable annotations that can be accessed and used in other tools.
This course presents best practices for taking advantage of ITK in your imaging research and commercial products. We demonstrate how to utilize the algorithms in ITK and the multitude of ITK extensions that are freely available on the web.
This is an intensive course intended to give clinicians, biomedical researchers, and medical industry professionals practical knowledge to help them determine how to incorporate medical image AI into their practice, research, processes, and products. Special emphasis is placed on MONAI, the freely available, open-source platform for medical image AI research and product development.
This course will allow you to look “under the hood” of the ParaView application and provide you with a detailed understanding of ParaView’s framework as well as how to customize it in order to better suit your visualization needs.
This course provides an overview of ParaView, including how to visualize and process data. The examples are based on use cases from several scientific domains.
The advanced course builds upon the knowledge gained from the beginner course. It offers in-depth training on writing filters, composite data pipelines and advanced rendering approaches with VTK.
The beginner course offers a firsthand look at the Visualization Toolkit for users/developers coming from different backgrounds. The course is structured to introduce the students to VTK, teach the most fundamental concepts and set up a working environment and explore simple visualization pipelines.
This course will introduce the Visualization Toolkit for the web, VTK.js, for users and developers interested in bringing their 3D visualizations to the web. This course focuses on building and exploring simple interactive visualizations, while introducing core VTK.js concepts and architecture.
This course will introduce trame and go over the basics (reactive state, method calls, custom-widgets, from vue to Python syntax). We'll cover VTK and ParaView in the context of trame. Then we'll explore the various deployment options from a single code base (local, desktop, jupyter, cloud, ondemand). Finally we live 30 minutes for open questions.
