L-PLATE SERIES

On Monday 8 February, VALA will present the 2010 L-Plate Series. This series of introductory sessions focuses on the technologies that will be discussed during the VALA conference. Brush up your knowledge and enhance your VALA2010 Conference experience by attending the VALA2010 L-Plate Series. This series is free to all VALA2010 Conference delegates. The 2008 VALA L-Plate series proved to be very popular, with 96% saying it exceeded their expectations, so book early as spaces are limited. L-Plate Series registration includes afternoon tea.

The sessions will provide an introduction on the basic concepts in each of the topics, outline the main trends and use live examples where possible.

Please register at the Registration and Information Desk before attending the L-Plate series.
