Whilst the material is a little Palm OS focused (that's where the guy worked). It's not that biased and there is some good content. This was a good use of time.
Part of a description of this course, is that one of the benefits of taking it is the opportunity to "network with various members of the PalmOS team."
Doesn't sound like they have a lot of confidence in the actual substance of the course itself.
