Hi Ravi,

This is great feedback.  I agree that generally as a community we put 
too much emphasis on low-level geospatial code and very little on 
front-end usability...which is why projects like OpenJump and QGIS shine 
so brightly.

Sounds like you gave a great session!  I enjoy giving those sessions to 
interested students very much.
