    This was not "advanced." But it was a nice walkthrough by example. $50 was a fair price but you could have learned more technical depth by just paying for a month of subscription to or following the tutorial on the jQuery Mobile book by o' reily.

    The "class" going faster and as an overview would have been a good presentation to skim in 20 minutes at a weekday meetup. But it was not a good use of time on a Saturday morning.

    A huge thank you to everyone that attended and made this class a success. M-GO hopes to see you all again at the Responsive Design meetup later this month. Also, I need to make a shameless plug for our Front End Team here at M-GO. They are looking for a few great engineers that want to build out the next big thing in entertainment. Email us at [masked].

    Cheers, JSON
