ArcPad 8 Bootcamp is back... October 22-23 in Seattle!

Our ArcPad 8 Bootcamp at the ESRI User Conference was very successful - many thanks to those of you who attended and assisted!

Based on lots of feedback, we've expanded the Bootcamp to 2-days with more hands-on PC exercises.

We've also teamed up with the King County GIS Center to offer the ArcPad 8 Bootcamp at their convenient, state-of-the-art Seattle training facility.

We're pleased to offer the next class in Seattle, WA on October 22-23, 2009.
