Hi Alastair,

I'd definitely advise sticking with a one day event if you can, expanding
to multiple days increases the complexity exponentially in my opinion :-)

If that means narrowing the context, eg by pitching it at a particular use
level and not including things for beginners, then so be it.

Looking forward to it!
