    A couple of quick points, folks...if you're planning to attend, please RSVP ASAP, as we need a count so we can order the right amount of food (yep, for those who haven't attended yet, we'll have nice sandwiches, etc.)

    Also, if time allows, we may include some hands-on exercise in this week's session, so please bring your laptop with Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 (you may also want to install appMobi or Xamarin if you'd like to try those). We'll have a limited number of tables set up, so plan to arrive early if you would like table space!
