Cay Horstmann Rocked The Theatre

Cay Horstmann spoke at last weeks SMI Press Author chat and did a fabulous job! There were around 30 attendees to this chat and Heidi Dailey from the Sun Developer Network facilitated the discussion wonderfully as always.

Here are a few pictures from the session. We really hope Cay comes back to participate in this chat series - he was informative, fun, honest and just a joy to have participate - thanks Cay!
