David Parker, Microsoft MVP for 8 years, Visio partner for 16 years, and author of two Visio books,
has been delivering a Visio courses for Microsoft around Europe these past few months,
and can now transfer some of his essential knowledge to your development team.
Over two days, David presents the concepts of Visio structured diagrams, how you can link them to data,
how you can adapt built-in shapes, stencils and templates, or how you can create your own.
All versions and editions of Visio feature shapes that can be programmed using their ShapeSheet.
This has a range of functions, similar to Excel cell functions, that can be used to create fantastic interactive graphics.
In addition, Visio Professional and Premium editions feature Text, Icons and DataBar Data Graphics that enhance the understanding of Shape Data.
You can make your own custom Data Graphic items when you understand how to make SmartShapes, and David will show you how!

The architecture of any Visio-based solution requires an understanding of how Visio combines data and graphics together.
This 2 day on-site workshop will cover some topics that are essential to the design and development of a successful Visio solution.
An understanding of these topics will prepare the attendees for an in-depth analysis of their own solution requirements,
and prepare them for an informed specification and development process.
The course can be tailored to meet your business needs, so, for example,
it can start with an introduction to the power of Visio SmartShapes for business decision makers and developers alike,
but then can focus on more advanced topics for just developers.
The price for this unique course is available on request, ex-VAT, plus T & E, and is delivered on your premises.
David has been presenting this course around Europe,
so the only limitation is that it is presented in English.
