Technical Workshops

Maxus Australia has been holding a series of technical workshops in various cities since early 2004. Our workshops cover a variety of useful technical topics.

The workshops take the format of a live presentation by Maxus technical staff, with handouts provided to attendees. The workshops are especially useful to those of you who use the Inmagic software quite successfully already, but would like to broaden your knowledge.

"Well, that's the best money we've spent in a long time. Not only could I find where to find the names of everything I needed for a script, but I even applied them correctly!!! The script actually works. I found the sample that exported records in CSV format, and I even added the command to put the field names at the top of the file!!"
