Hey there! Normally I launch each week of Techniques 2010 on Mondays. I launched week 1 early, because I'm leaving on vacation and it seemed appropriate to launch on April 1st. So week one will last all through next week - April 1 - 11th.
But I'll still be on vacation during the normally scheduled week 2 launch, which is Monday, April 12th. The tutorial will go live without me (we got a great staff of smart people that can do that in my absence). But I might not have internet access that day, so I won't be able to moderate our Week 2 discussion.
Feel free to chat about the tutorial without me, and I'll join in with some profound and earthshattering commentary about Variable Star Blocks, on Wednesday April 14th, when I'm back in the office. :()
