RE: FrameMaker training in July
Jim, I'm not sure I understand your point. Are you saying you want a separate room
so that Tuesday tutorials can still go on in parallel to this session. If not, I think you
are better off in the big room where you have the best LCD (hi-Res, hi-lumens), folks
can spread out as much as they need to, but near the front, the speaker has a platform
and a good microphone so all can hear well, and if 40 or 50 should show up you're
still in great shape. Another thought might be to use the 802.11 room so that all
could be on their wireless network for easy file transfers and application sharing.
The last thing you would want, I should think, is to be wedged in a small room for 25.
Just my 2 cents worth. :-)
