    As much as time permits... Sep 27, 2012

    I have enjoyed it whenever this week I have had a moment during the day. I especially appreciate the on demand content, because work often comes in the way when a scheduled presentation is going on air. But in this way, I can catch up.

    Handouts? Sep 28, 2012

    Thanks to everyone at Proz for putting on this event. Unfortunately I had to miss some interesting presentations that were in the middle of the night in my timezone but I realize you can't please everyone. Another presentation had apparently started an hour before the time listed, so that I only caught the last few minutes of it. But the presentations I attended were without exception informative and useful and the speakers very knowledgeable. Where can we find handouts of the slides?
