It’s not about the machine, it’s about the man.

The Man is Scott Whitlock who impressed me so much … I wanted to tell you all about him (his wife too), and share his great blog with you.

PLC programming

Scott is a best-practice PLC programmer and host

Scott by day does PLC, .NET, VB6, and SQL Server programming. In the evenings Scott and his wife run a question and answer site for parents called, then on the weekends he writes and maintains an open source framework called SoapBox Core for developing extensible .NET applications. Somehow, Scott still finds time to produce an excellent blog, which is how I found him. A must read for all our followers, see

What first impressed me as I read the RSLogix 5000 tutorial part of his blog, is that as he laid out clear and concise tutorials, he recommended many of the best practices we teach our students. So much so, it was as if he was trained by us. 🙂 Now one might think, well, that is not such a big deal, but it really is if you had my life’s experience running a training company specializing in PLCs. I have read most of the books, viewed most the popular PLC video series on YouTube, had instructor from other PLC training providers working for me at one time or another, even attended many PLC vendor classes. All the aforementioned PLC training resources had one thing in common, they did not teach best-practices like we do. Many actually teach worst practices putting man and machine at unnecessary risk and increasing downtime risk. So after all these years running into someone who not only teaches best practices in his PLC tutorial, but also explains why that particular way is the best way (also like we do), does amaze and impress me. Scott definately deserves our kudos. 🙂

[Note to Scott: When I say above “Best-Practices” I mean that in the most highest of complementary ways, meaning you are instructing the current best way to do something. Yes, I read your other blog post too, including the one where you comment big corporations get stuck in unchanging ‘Best-practices’ and ‘standards’ that stifle innovation and improvement. LOL So whenever you read best practices above, interpret it as ‘the best way’, the current best way. Thanks again for your great blog.]
