Plan for GCaP in November

Seats are still available for the final Guerrilla Boot Camp (GBoot) and Guerrilla Capacity Planning (GCaP) classes for 2011 at the Early Bird rate. Before registering, you can review the highlights of the May GCaP class. If you came to the August GDAT class, but missed the May classes, this is your chance to complete the set.
