Howdy folks,

Open Edge is Friday this week. 
That's the day after tomorrow! ;)

Apologies for the massive cross-post on this - but a couple of people
just told me they hadn't heard about it, or had forgotten it was on, so
this is announcement and reminder in one! Registration is still open -
so if you can get yourself to SCEGGS in Sydney we'd very much love to
see you there. The program has also been updated and finalised

Registration is just $49 and you can register and pay online or select
cheque or cash on the day.

Check out our amazing list of speakers!
