Steve told me that he'd like this to be a very interactive session so bring your questions and be prepared to learn a ton. VersionOne is sponsoring us this month... thanks VersionOne!

    I will be posting the slides in the coming days. Unfortunately there is not a lot of text in them, so the reading will be pretty light. I put some of my comments in the notes fields, but since we spent a lot of time in discussion that will be missing.
