Just a quick note to inform people that Hal Helm's next class, Real-World OO Programming, will be held February 23-27 in Sarasota, FL. More details may be found here. I would hope folks already recognize that Hal is a legend in the community and his class is very well worth the time and price. Ben Nadel did an excellent multipart review of the class here. I'd attend myself but I'm trying to limit travel while my wife is in college and the kids are in school.

To make a good deal even better, if you register with discount code: raycamden, you will get $250 dollars off the price. If enough people sign up I'll get a free pass myself and I'd (hopefully) be able to take it during summer. So you will not only be helping yourself, but me as well. :)
