A few weeks a go I mentioned that I would be hosting a Commerce Server Event here in beautiful Los Angeles. Well I am getting closer and closer to finalizing everything and if all goes well I will be doing anther event in London but that date is not yet set. So let's talk about this event :).

Currently the Training event is scheduled for August 4th through 8th. The Class will start 9:00 and end at 5:00 PM. The price for the 5 day training is set for $2495.00. I will discount if you book as a group. Payment must be made two weeks prior to the event. To register please send me an email with your contact information and I will confirm your seat. I will post more info on my site at Commerce Server Training site for location and hotel.
