"This programming stuff just doesn't make sense!"

Have you ever found yourself saying that?

I have.

Early on in my BAS career this "programming" stuff was like voodoo magic. Despite my best efforts I couldn't get my programs to work. I kept trying and failing, again and again. But through this process I learned a secret to programming that when learned sweeps away the clouds of confusion once and for all. A little bit later I will tell you what this secret is but first.

Why is learning how to program building automation systems the best choice you can make for your career?

It is all about leverage. 

You can only install so many thermostats in a day. But with programming (and the secret method I will show you later) you can literally 10x your productivity.

And that matters, because make no mistake about it productivity is how you are measured. If you want to:

  • check
    Secure a lead spot in your company, and earn the salary that lead spot demands
  • check
    Possess a skill set that virtually ensures you will never be jobless

Then you need to learn programming.

But how?

I Was Making Mistakes Until...

Earlier on I told you how I was struggling to learn programming. No matter what I did things just didn't seem to click. It wasn't until I went to school for one of my two Master's Degrees in IT that I saw there was another way. 

You see, in the IT world the programmer doesn't write programs from scratch. 

No the programmer uses something very powerful, something that ensures that he or she can easily create programs without writing them from scratch.

Now before I get to far. I want to make it clear that this secret is not just copying existing code and modifying it. That is one of the worst things you can do as a new programmer. No this secret is much simpler than that.

The Powerful Secret That Will Change Your World

Design Patterns.

Design Patterns are the most powerful technique you as a programmer can use in order to write quality code, quickly. So how do they work?

Design Patterns work on the principle that there are only a few ways  (and in most cases only one way) to code the same HVAC sequence. For example, look at the design pattern below for controlling a supply fan and supply fan variable frequency drive.

Imagine trying to write that code from scratch?

But that's what so many programmers do every single day. They read the sequence and write code from scratch or worse. They try to force fit some code from another job into their current project (this is worse then coding from scratch and leads to a lot of failures).

Why Isn't This Well Known?

The reality is manufacturer training exists to teach you how to use their software not how to code. If you are going to manufacturer training expecting to become a BAS programmer you are going to be very disappointed. 

And the trade schools aren't much better. The good majority of them are still using hardware from the 1990's to teach you BAS and some still teach pneumatics as the "BAS Programming" method of choice!

The reality is design patterns work, the entire IT industry has embraced them. So why hasn't the BAS industy caught on? 

The reason is that as an industry we are still stuck in our ways.

The Old Way Of Learning Programming

The average BAS professionals journey is something like this. 

As a mechanic, college student, or former professional you fall into a job in BAS. After a few months your boss seeing potential in you sends you to manufacturer training. There a "trainer" who has be teaching the same approach for the past 30 years guides you through a 5 day course with a carefully manicured course workbook.

This course workbook is designed to give you just enough functional knowledge of the manufacturers software so that you can use the software.

From here you are sent back out into the field and you struggle. The programs you need to write don't match up with your workbook. So you reach out to a senior tech for help. And help they do, they send you code from a previous job that you need to interpret. You try to alter the code but it just doesn't work. 

After a week of struggling the senior tech comes out to your project and literally writes the code for you but since he or she is in a rush you never get "taught" what was changed. This continues on for years until programming magically "clicks" or you quit. 

That is the reality of programming in the BAS world today.

My Journey Towards BAS Programming

I've been in your shoes. I went to four weeks of "training" early on in my career and came out doing the same thing you are probably doing right now. I tried to copy code, I tried to learn by reading other people's code, I tried to write code from scratch. 

But I was missing the underlying why of programming.

Why do I use an XOR block? 

Should I use a sequencer or a PID loop with hysteresis for staging? 

What order do I write my code in and does it even matter?

You see no manufacturer training answered these questions. These were questions and processes that were learned with blood, sweat, and tears and a A LOT of self-study after work.

There's Finally A Way To Learn Programming Fast

You, my friend, are not in that position... You have arrived here at the perfect time. A time when all of the knowledge you need to know has been captured. Now you just need a way to get access to this information and  someone who has been in your shoes to guide you.

Someone who has made the journey...

So that you can take the hidden shortcuts that you didn't know exist.

But how would you know if you found this mythical programming course?

Here are a few of the signs to look for:

  • check
    The training program needs to teach you a method to programming that is repeatable and easy to learn
  • check
    The training must be able to be accessed without physically attending a class and must be consumable while you are on the go (you know how much time us BAS folks spend in the car)
  • check
    The training must have short, easy to understand videos that assume no prior knowledge
  • check
    There must be a way to collaborate with other BAS Professionals in order to grow in your knowledge once the course is over

That's Why I Created BAS Programming Fundamentals

I know for a fact that the need for BAS programming knowledge is only increasing. 

And it will continue to increase. Programming is the most valuable skill you can learn as a BAS Professional. Programming has more effect on the success of your career than any other skill you can develop.

But there is a huge gap in our industry a gap filled with technicians and engineers who do not know how to program.

 I created BAS Programming Fundamentals to close that gap. BAS Programming Fundamentals is the culmination of years of field experience programming  some of the most complex BAS control sequences in existence.

This is the ultimate BAS Programming course.

It's Time To Decide

What lies before you is the best BAS Programming training for Building Automation System Professionals in the world. This training will give you all of the tools to create programs and future-proof your BAS career.

But it's up to you. Only you can make the choice to invest in yourself. I can't make you click the button below. I've provided you with the best BAS Programming training program in the world for the best value. I've shown you what will happen if you do not grow in your knowledge of BAS Programming.

Avoid spending years wandering in the desert trying to learn BAS programming and enter the oasis of programming knowledge also known as BAS Programming Fundamentals.

It's up to you now to decide which path you follow.

The path most people take is to continue along, ignorant of the change that is happening around them until it's too late and they've been passed by. Most people along this path will spend years trying to learn programming on their own when BAS Programming Fundamentals teaches them everything they need to know in a few short weeks.

The other path, the one less traveled, is to choose to invest in yourself and master the skill of programming BAS. These are the people who value their time and their careers. The intelligent few who see that the minor cost of BAS Programming Fundamentals is vastly outweighed by the value of mastering the ability to program a BAS.

Which one do you choose...

Invest In Yourself
