Crash with us on Sunday

Many of our patrons arrive at the conference on Saturday for better airfare and/or more relaxed travel. As a result, one of the most popular parts of the event has been our optional crash course program. Our crash courses are designed to jump-start your conference experience, offering primers on the fundamentals and on topics with which you might not be familiar. These courses carry a modest extra fee; they are the only part of the curriculum that is not covered by your registration fee. Here are the Sunday course we offered last year:
