From the Autors:
"We have a few years' experience working with various programming systems used in industrial automation, from PLC to visualization systems (SCADA)... It was our intention to do this course based on practical examples, and to relate it to what I see in my work. It means introducing a measure of problem-solving to the tutorials, along with the knowledge you'll need to write the programs we will work on. We hope my course will be a good introduction to the fascinating world of logical controllers..."
