Handouts, code from Jerry Winters courses at AU

Has anyone had any luck getting the handouts or code for the courses Jerry Winters gave at AU this year. Unfortunately I was only able to attend CP205-1 VSTA: The Future of VBA. I've emailed him with the address he gave on his two side Power Point presentation but no response.

Also has anyone read his new book? I'd like to get it but Amazon.com had only two reviews and one said they were waiting 6 weeks and still hadn't received the book and that was posted yesterday. That review and the fact he hasn’t responded to my email has me concerned about shelling out the money for the book.

I am interested in obtaining Jerry's AU handouts that aren't posted on the AU website as well as his code samples.

He did reply to an email a couple of months ago and emailed me the setup file for his vb.net express project template. He replied with in a few hours.

I am also interested in Jerry's book.

Jerry if you read this post could you give us an update on the availability of your book on your website and on amazon.

Also if you could post your AU handouts and data sets on your website that would be excellent.

Thanks again!

I ordered the book from Amazon.com one week before christmas and asked for delivery last Friday, it arrived in the UK today.

The book looks good though.

You guys are lucky. I ordered my copy from amazon on May 08 2007 and it was delayed twice. The final delivery estimate which made me spit the dummy and cancel my order was 01/15/2008 - 01/23/2008.

I did finally her from Jerry and got a link to the source files for CP401-1 Creating Jigs in VB.NET: An Introduction. No luck on any of the other courses or handouts.

I did order his book from Amazon.com on Monday the 28th and received an e-mail today saying it was shipped so it looks like the distribution problems may be taken care of..

I got his book late last year, "VB.Net Programming for AutoCAD Custimization" and it does cover many of the basics you need to get started. I find it a little lacking in advanced material, but most of that i have found through web research (here and other places). I am looking for a couple of things still, in case one of these courses i missed covered it, advanced transforms such as mirror, and asignment of dynamic block properties to individual block refs.

I have the one on ACAD and .net; is that what you guys are looking for?

I am also anxious to get the book but I hope it is a little more concise then the handout.

It is very good in teaching you how to Import ACAD-VBA code into .net but he seems to leave a few important details out that I was able to get help with from a friend.

Does anyone happen to have a copy of his book that they'd like to sell used?

Thanks

Hey guys

I'm sorry to say that I can not post the handout form AU because there are explicit copyrights in it. Glad I checked :smileyhappy:
In court would not be a good way to meet Jerry :smileyhappy:

Yes, i saw the book on Amazon for like $57 however, I don't think that I want to pay that much for it; especially since I have heard conflicting opinions about it.

Jerry is one smart guy, I must say.
Ahead of the curb with .net as it relates to ACAD and writing books. He must be doing well with this one.

Smart guy.
