    The Long Beach meet up was packed. The half lecture and half lab organization of the Angular JS jump start was great. It was absolutely worth getting up early for. The SMUG group organizes some of the most informative and focused demos in southern California. Thank you to North and Shobokshi for continuing to share their passion for the latest in web development tools.

    I thought the class was pretty rad. I understood most of the class and got a lot of it. Not only did I dig the course material, but all the peripheral info about Plunker, Pluralsite, Underscore, etc. was extremely valuable. I look forward to continue to explore Angular and big thanks to instructor, organizer, venue, and sponsors.

    I just came up with a great idea. Or so I think. What would be most helpful in the next iteration of this course is to teach people how to use the docs on angularjs since they are not extremely helpful. I'm starting to understand them a little bit better, but if you learn to use the docs, then you can fish for yourself.

      Good idea Robert. That would be helpful. I'll remember that. Thanks for you input. Please don't hesitate to submit any ideas that you think of for any of the training programs.

    Nicely done presentation/labs by Hattan. It had a good flow for a 6 hr one day training. A common dev env for labs on Plunker was a really great idea. Thanks as well to Phillip and his people for the effort in organizing this.

    Really enjoyed the presentation and material, especially the TDD / BDD exploration at the end. Would love to see more focus on that area, but I understand that time was a constraint.

    Will the slides be made available?

    I actually think the presentation should have a WebEx or join me type meeting so that we could join virtually even in the same room.

    It would have been great if the venue provided a direct line of sight to the presenter and be able to read what was being projected. I believe that majority of the people attending did not have a direct line of sight to the material being presented let alone being able to read it as it was being projected.
