    I left early cause I had to drop someone off, but I wished there was more code and less slide of the 45 minutes I did attend. The presenter seemed to know what he was talking about.

    I got an email stating the location was changed to Internet Solutions offices, but on this page it still says Oracle. Which one is correct?

      Apologies for the miscommunication. It's at the Oracle offices.
