Last week we decided to postpone User Days until Saturday, July 10th so we could get more presenters and let more people know about it. Over this past week Nigel Babu, Chris Johnston and I worked hard to contact prospective instructors and get the schedule pinned down, which we finished yesterday afternoon.
