    Hi mentats!
    I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend and enjoyed the fireworks!

    Given it's been sometime since we had the first class for Kendo UI and not many folks were able to come due to the hour we are postponing it for later and next week we will be giving an "Introduction to Android" course. The day and hour has changed to accommodate most people needs. Now everyone should have plenty of time to arrive :)

    We are meeting at 6:45 pm at the entrance of Bravern 2. I will wait until 7:05 pm to start. Doors will be closed to the public so try to come before that hour so I can open the door for you.

    Just realized there is a schedule conflict. Will the presentation be recorded?

      No. The first time you come to the courses you get a free 1 month Pluralsight membership so you can watch it later. The const to that you can´t ask any question to the expert.
