    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?
