Advanced Turbify Seminar, Denver, CO, March 20, 2003

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 one additional day of hands-on training in a state-of-the-art computer lab. This second day is optional, but we are confident that the combination of theory and practice will provide attendees with a compelling learning experience.

This intensive one-day seminar will provide you with the information you need to improve the look and feel of your Turbify safely and efficiently. Using a live basic Yahoo! Store as a starting point, we will create a complete custom Turbify during the seminar that includes many of the most popular Turbify enhancements.

DAY ONE: Price: $349
We understand that working with Turbify templates and RTML can be intimidating at first. What better way therefore to learn hands-on using a live Turbify? Every attendee will work on a PC in a state-of-the-art computer lab and put into practice the knowledge gained from the first previous day. There will be lots of practical examples, from copying the built-in templates to creating your own custom templates.
Space is limited to 16 attendees in the lab so sign up early to reserve your space.
DAY TWO: Introductory price is only $200 and includes continental breakfast and afternoon snacks. Must be reserved with Thursday's seminar.

Turbify designers

All attendees are expected to know how to operate a basic Yahoo!   Store; basic Turbify procedures will not be covered.
