"The seminars combined with hands-on training provided by application engineers from Plexim are packed with insightful tips and techniques. Let me paraphrase newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane here. A Plexim workshop is worth a thousand page long manual. Be there!"
— Bartlomiej Ufnalski, Warsaw University of Technology
