Subject Re: Podling Report Draft
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2017 19:29:23 GMT
Regarding this item, "An online course on Edgent was developed on
DeveloperWorks, providing further material for new users to familiarize
themselves with Edgent", I don't believe a course was ever created. I know
one was in the works earlier this year, but it was never completed. Am I
off base?

The rest looks great, thanks!
