Is the course for beginners or should I have background first?

Hi Vik

(i) Thanks for the clarification - all makes sense

(ii) I'm not the OP. *I* am NOT teaching this course. Just don't want there to be any confusion. I love cucumber, I use it regularly, but I'm not qualified to teach a course on it. Hopefully the OP will jump back in and remind people of his name and the URL for the course because unfortunately I've lost the original emails.

Best Wishes,
Peter

Hey guys -

I feel the need to clarify my initial response, as I fear it may have come across more glib than intended.

I fully agree that time is valuable, especially the instructor of a course like this -- and personally could probably use an overview in Cucumber. It's great that Peter even offered to teach a course -- its just this kind of thing that makes the RoR community so strong.

My feedback on price point was under the assumption that the goal was to get as many people as possible to attend (and hence further the ties within the community) rather than make the most money. I subscribe to the idea that the good will, personal brand and network built through these kinds of things can easily be worth more than $400 to the instructor.

But that's just me. Peter - you should of course charge exactly as much as you think your class is worth. My suggestion is merely to include more factors in the calculation than the ticket price.

Best,
vik
