|Retail Customer Service Training Lynda.com|
Retail customer service happens in a specific setting: supporting the sale or fulfillment of a physical product. Unlike a call center, in a retail scenario you get to meet customers face to face. It can be overwhelming, but it's a great opportunity to deliver fantastic customer service—the kind that gets you noticed by managers, and keeps customers coming back. It starts with a positive attitude, which leads to a good first impression. However, you can't guarantee customers will always be happy.
In this course, learn techniques to deal with upset customers, and show empathy with active listening. Instructor and customer service expert David Brownlee—the author of Rock Star Customer Service—also provides etiquette tips to ensure quality service at every point of interaction: from the moment customers walk in the door to keeping them happy while they're on hold.

|Scala Essential Training Training Lynda.com|
Are you ready to discover the capabilities of the Scala programming language? Scala source code compiles to Java bytecode, so that the resulting executable code runs on a Java virtual machine (JVM). Java libraries are interoperable with Scala code. Like Java, Scala is object-oriented, and uses a curly-brace syntax reminiscent of the C programming language. Unlike Java, Scala has many features of functional programming languages, including currying, type inference, immutability, lazy evaluation, and pattern matching. It also has an advanced type system supporting algebraic data types, anonymous types, covariance, contravariance, and higher-order types. Other features of Scala not present in Java include operator overloading, optional parameters, named parameters, raw strings, and no checked exceptions. Many of these flexible features are covered in this course.
Join Peggy Fisher as she helps get you started with Scala, so you can leverage the unique capabilities it offers. First, learn the basics of type inference, variables, loops, functions, and operators. Then, find out how to read files using a console, perform pattern matching, handle exceptions, and more. Finally, learn how to use classes, fields, methods, and objects.

|Revit Area Calculations Training Lynda.com|
Architects and designers are often tasked with calculating and reporting the sizes of the spaces within a project. Typically, a set of detailed area calculations following specific rules and guidelines—which are often set by building officials, leasing agents, and others—is required. If you need to make such calculations, you'll likely find that you need more precision than is possible with Revit rooms. In such cases, you need to use Revit area elements and area plans instead of rooms. Areas appear very similar to rooms, but they're separate elements with a unique purpose and workflow.
In this course, Paul F. Aubin explores the creation of area plans and areas, and discusses the workflow that enables them. Using these tools, see how you can group and quantify the spaces within a project, and create detailed and accurate calculations of all important areas. The resulting information can be presented graphically onscreen, printed, scheduled, reported, and exported as necessary to satisfy a variety of project stakeholders—those using Revit and those who don't. If you have found it difficult to capture the intricacies of area calculations in your Revit projects—or have only tried to do so using the room elements—then you owe it to yourself to give area elements a try.
|Revit Schedules Training Lynda.com|

Eric covers a few standard schedules such as door, window, and room schedules, and then dives into the specifics of Revit parameters, and how they relate to the underlying database that you have—perhaps, unknowingly—developed by virtue of modeling your project. He goes into creating blank schedules, material takeoffs, keynote legends, schedule keys, and more.
