How the day runs

Arrive from 9:15am, while we don't start until 9.30am, there is tea/coffee and pastries to kick start your day. We break for an hour at 1pm and we aim to finish at 4.30pm.

You will need to bring a laptop (with wi-fi) as the course is ‘hands-on’. No special software is needed for the day except a modern web browser installed (Our preference is for the latest version of Google Chrome or Firefox).

Workshops are limited to 6-8 attendees.
