Advanced Turbify Seminar and Workshop, Los Angeles, California, September 4-5, 2003

Registration for the LA seminar is now closed. Please check back for other dates and locations.

Join recognized designers Istvan Siposs and Michael Whitaker and fellow Yahoo! Store operators for this popular training seminar and learn how to build a custom Turbify. Responding to valuable suggestions from previous seminars, we are now offering this course in a hands-on two-day format in a state-of-the-art computer lab. We are confident that the combination of theory and practice will provide attendees with a compelling learning experience.

This intensive two-day seminar will provide you with the information you need to improve the look and feel of your Turbify safely and efficiently. During the seminar you will be modifying and creating your own templates either in your own Turbify or a test store (if you prefer to work on a test store, you should open one prior to coming to the seminar.)
