Looking for help at DrupalCon Baltimore

Hey everyone,

We're looking for an additional Drupaler to help us in the Beginner Class at DrupalCon Baltimore:
https://events.drupal.org/baltimore2017/training/absolute-beginners-guid...

We've done this training for about 8 years now, but ... good news! ... Baltimore is turning out to be far more popular than other years.

So we need an extra pair of hands on Monday, April 24. You won't need to teach or prepare anything. The role will be to circulate and help students with questions, plus bug-shooting their problems.

The Learning Series Part 5: Drupal 8 - Let's be friends - Broward Drupal Meeting Minutes - October 12, 2016

This month Jay Epstein (@jeppy64 http://jay-epstein.com/) covered the fifth part of "The Learning Series: Drupal 8 - Let's be friends." Part 5 allowed us to continue building out the back end architecture. We jumped into Views. We learned about the concept of the master content type and its child nodes (and grandchild nodes). We learned about the importance and screaming fast performance of rendering small bits of related content in a view that begins with the master node ID as a contextual filter.

Now it's up to all of you to take the information and use it to your advantage.
