I'm not a total beginner but I'm looking forward to attending this and meeting Johan Falk. He's done a lot of great Drupal community work and has helped me tremendously.

Not totally new to Drupal but its good to see an overview from your point of view. No worries about moving quickly. That works for me.

Good luck with your teaching cert!

It will be a big loss to the Drupal community if he doesn't stay involved.
