Hi Frank,

Do you think that we should be offering a lecture or a lab at the
conference? I am leaning towards offering a 1.5 lecture rather than a
lab. I am concerned that we could get bogged down in a lab and loose
focus on communicating the message we need. What are your thoughts? Who
do think would attend this workshop and what would they expect?

Bob / Mateusz,

I agree that "using the FDO API" would have a substantially greater
chance of
attracting a reasonable audience, and would help fill a hole with FDO -
is it's adoption outside MapGuide and Map.
