Darn, wish I had the money! This will sell out fast.


Holy moly! For that price I better be able to hit the top 25 list on my first app wink


For 4 days of classes, that’s not all that expensive. $573 a day is very reasonable. Hopefully they’ll do one in Boston soon.


That’s a fools price, but corporations will shell out the fee to send any takers on a mini distraction break. I recall my corp paying some lazy bum 2 weeks of my pay to train us for 3 days. We could have learned more if they paid us to read the manuals and practice on our own for one week.

If it was going to sell out fast would they be offering an early bird discount?

Better to take a god college course.

You have to love the irony of the name: “Pragmatic”
