    Hi Guys,
    It was a great meetup yesterday. The sessions on admin extension and demo was really great. I think some body mentioned about a meetup to discuss training developers and admins on certification . Let me know on it and i can offer some help on this?

      sorry, the rest of my comment didn't come through... we are planning many different types of activities for the Admin group, but one will be study groups for the Admin cert exam. We would love for you to help! Keep an eye out for the survey coming out next week regarding the Admin group
