Post-Conference Blaise 5 Layout Training (Oct 10-12, 2016)

Since many of you are here for the conference anyway, we thought it might be a good idea to offer our Blaise 5 Layout Training in the week following the IBUC, so you can combine the two if so desired. You do not need to attend the IBUC to join the course.

Blaise 5 Layout Training is a three-day training course for Blaise developers, specifically, how to use the new tools in Blaise 5 to specify and apply layout.
