      Dear Justin,

      2. I will be recording the video/audio, of course.

      3. The video/audio will be provided per request after the workshop, but I would need a solid promise that they won’t be uploaded somewhere public. I hope you understand!

      Thanks, Justin!

      1) It would be just fair if you buy 2-3 tickets for the whole group. :-)

    Hi Vitaly et al
    I am pleased I discovered your website. However, I got worried when I saw the dates on the comments section; some go way back to 2007. This gave me the impression that your website might be not current. I am pleased that there are some 2015 dates on this page. Is there some way that you can have the latest comments on your homepage first. I really like the stuff on your site.
    Many thanks
    John

    Hi Vitaly!

    I attended the SmashingComf last year and am super excited about the 2016 conferences! I was wondering if you are planning on a conference in New York again this year. I’m impatiently waiting for the listing of conferences for 2016!!!!

    I can hardly wait!
