A TatukGIS customer in the United States now offers developer training kits for the DK.NET and DK-VCL product editions. The Training Kits are designed to enable developers and organizations to substantially reduce the DK learning curve and quickly begin creating powerful DK based applications by tapping into the knowledge of a highly experienced DK developer and customer who has been successfully developing GIS solutions with the DK product since 2003.

The DK Training Kits include a detailed training manual containing over 100 pages of hands-on instructional material covering 16 chapters that illustrate step-by-step how to set-up and use the DK to create 12 focused applications. Included with the DK Training Kit are the source code to the example applications, sample data, and videos that illustrate how to use most of the applications.

The DK Training Kits illustrates how to quickly create a fully functioning GIS viewer/editor application with features including create new vector layers, select features by location, create in-memory layers, edit shapes, geoprocessing, edit attributes, advanced feature symbolization, edit enterprise GIS database layers, GPS, address matching, routing, and more!!

The DK Training Kits reflect the DK version 9. The sample code for the DK.NET Training Kit is written in Visual Basic .NET 2005 and the sample code for the DK-VCL Training Kit is written in Delphi.
