Getting Help - Lesson 4

This course is intended to provide a jump start in understanding and implementing PyMAPDL. In this lesson, we will provide details on the PyMAPDL documentation site and its GitHub page. This lesson helps with providing information such as where to find information on the documentation and how to get help on the questions which is an important step as part of developing programs by oneself.
