One of the things Massimo saw in terms of tutorial presentation at
SC09 and we liked was the use of dual projectors - one with the slide
/ reference and the other with terminal and output windows. It made it
much easier for people to follow along, especially when it was easy to
get lost in the material.

Sort of a long drive for a day tutorial. I hear they have peaches...
but it's up to the SC presentation group as a whole or part.

Not sure. I can handle 10-15 people one on one with hands-on stuff and
not loose track. I think maximum and minimum headcount are a function
of who all from the SC group is available and what material the
audience is interested in.

Got something in mind?
