This was a most informative session with excellent examples, and exactly what I had hoped for and expected…. EXCEPT …

I did not expect to be the recipient of a brand new phone, which was a really awesome surprise. I knew there were some phones up for grabs, but did not realise I would be so lucky.

So 5/5 for a most excellent session!!
