Miles (et al),
Just so there's no confusion, we have limited space. The limit for the workshop is around 25 people, and we're closing in on 20 now. You'll need to RSVP with me with your interest in the topic and (assuming we're not already full) you'll be added to the list. Once we pass 20, I'll likely only be adding people who have experience reports to share.
Just drop me a line if you're interested. I'll also need your email for follow up communications before the workshop.
