2010 Conference Program


- Please note this program below was for the Wangaratta conference.

- A reminder this is a BYO laptop conference. If you do not have your own laptop, some Mac computers will be available for use.

- You need to register for every workshop session you are going to attend, as with previous conferences sessions will be capped at 15 participants so those who register first have more chance of getting their 1st preference.

- All sessions are platform (Mac/PC) neutral, that is they are applicable for any computer, except for the following:
- Sessions marked with a (M) indicate Mac sessions, if you do not have a Mac and wish to participate in these sessions we will have some you
can borrow.
