The Si2
OpenAccess 2.2
Online Course

12th Edition Posted August 2012 (list of enhancements).

The Si2 OpenAccess 2.2 Online Course is one of the formats generated from the Si2 OpenAccess API Tutorial. Independently written by the Si2 staff since 2003 to augment the native OpenAccess API documentation, the Si2 OpenAccess API Tutorial is nearing 1000 pages with chapters covering the breadth of the API, well over 400 illustrations, and dozens of coding labs to illustrate and reinforce concepts and semantics.

The Online Course is a developer's resource as well as a beginner's primer, enhancing the Tutorial material with

  • navigation convenience tools
  • auxiliary EDA and C++ reference books online
  • direct links to the OpenAccess API class pages
  • a search engine that returns links to pages categorized across the Si2 instructional text, Si2 labs, OA class pages and Programmers Guide, OA release code examples, auxiliary references as well as the API documentation deltas.
  • a user Comments tool for providing instant public feedback

The OA Online Course Webinar offers a quick way to see how the course is organized and sample its many useful features.

The new course Quick Tour, which takes about 3 hours, is a fast overview of the most important topics in the OpenAccess API.

As of 2009, the current edition of the Si2 OpenAccess Online Course is open only to OpenAccess Coalition member users. Any OpenAccess Coalition user may self-register. (See list of OAC members.)

Si2 Members Course! Starting November 2009, the original DM4 7th edition is open to all Si2 member users who have the OpenAccess V4 license. The course is self-registering. (See list of Si2 member companies).
