Why are there no LEARN MDL training resources?
Haven't Bentley held any MDL training courses in the last decade?
I went to a 5 day course back in '92 and a 3 day advanced Course in 96 (held by Koreenreef in hoofdorp?)
Surely there is a enough difference to warrent a MDL Update or another Advanced MDL course where changes in the latest V8i & CONNECT versions can be explained.
In the 90's MDL was openly available and some of the best utilities were created outside of Bentley. Select By, matching elements with tentative, exchanging files, Fence from shape, etc.
They are now part of Microstation.
Hi Steven Watson,
I would like to highly encourage you and others that may see this post to start and explore a lot of good MicroStation CONNECT API training content that we provide under: MicroStation CONNECT Developer Training Topics. We certainly have provided a lot of new and updated content there that you can view on demand for a lot of common CONNECT API programming topics and workflows.

Thanks Steven W however it seems that most of the books are not for Connect version of MicroStation. The web links are a big help!
