The Seattle Access Group is building an application to give the participants an opportunity to observe and join in the process from design to deployment.

The project leaders, Rob Cooper and Geoff Griffith, had the idea of a restaurant application as it will provide unlimited opportunities for testing and incorporating a features and techniques. The group has suggested items that they want to see demonstrated. 

Each session includes a step-by-step walk through of selected tasks as well as a discussion of the related best practices and preferences.
Monthly downloads include the end of session application as well as those from various stages along the way. Kinda like a cooking show approach, we get to cram a lot of information into a half hour session. And yet, everyone comes away with a finished product.

The real beauty is that everyone is encouraged to use the databases to test their own ideas and bring them to the meetings. This way makes it easy to share examples and describe issues, problems, ideas and solutions!

Come on ... join us on this adventure. It's going to be a fun ride ;-)
