    Wouldn't it be great if there were a stack of 2 minute long videos, created by product experts, offering free point tutorials on all aspects of PCB and schematic design with Cadence PCB Editor (OrCAD and Allegro)?

    Well wait no more!

    I am interested in learning Allegro PCB design. I went to the website you mentioned at Youtube and I can find no organization to the tutorials I found there. Is there a recommended sequence of tutorials I can take for learning the application?

     Hello Biggy D

    Thanks for your comment, it's a great idea to put them in a logical order, the problem is that Youtube filters and sorts by upload date or view count so it would get all de-sorted on there anyway. As for our webpage, yes we should organise that to be more logical in the order of the videos. We did try but ended up giving up because decisions like "should footprint editing come before board outlines" and "should push shove come before via arrays" seemed to happen on every video. They are designed to be bitesize learning videos so any order you do them in won't hurt. Cadence PCB editor is found in several suites at different levels so we need to address that also, it can be frustrating watching a video for a feature that is not a part of your suite. So to combat that we have dedicated playlists on YouTube for each of the main suites. I hope this helps explain why its not logically organised and we hope they are useful for you.

    There are also a number of ways to get formal training ranging from self paced to classroom which may help.
