  1. Participants are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to bring their own laptops to the sessions. If you don’t have a laptop, don’t worry. We have some available to loan you. Also, there might be some confusion about the iPad with 3G. This means that the iPad has the CAPABILITY of connecting over 3G, but you will have to purchase the plan from either Verizon or AT&T yourself. This plan can go month-to-month. You don’t have to purchase a 2 year contract. We are looking forward to seeing you at the TLA!
