  • Julie Colvin
    Julie Colvin United States of America There was a tremendous amount of information. The slides were efficient guide umbrellas for notes. Some slides were thorough enough to not require notes. Jeff articulated well and had good sequential progression through the information. There were some terms such as "putty" that were unfamiliar. Would have liked some other cloud based service examples. 2015-05-27 01:05:30
