Subject Re: Content tracks at ApacheCon Austin

I've got a query from someone from the OFBiz community interested in 
putting together a training course of 4 developer tutorials starting 
from basic beginner to increasingly advanced. Before I respond back to 
them I have a few questions:

I know tutorials tend to cost extra - do we know how much? (this is so I 
can gather interest from the community to attend and pay!)
Is there any other potential way we could handle this training? (If it's 
not a tutorial then what other umbrella could it fall under?)
If we do get the interest (and if they get selected) then could our 
track cover more than one day?
