    Will you be coming to Zurich in the near future.
    If you have any seminars here, I will be interested to join the same.

    Hi Aakash,

    I would be more than happy to do so, but need at least 10 people to form a DV2.0 certification class. If anyone in Zurich is interested in attending a DV2.0 Certification class, please either comment here, or reply directly to me via email, and we’ll see about setting one up.

    Thank-you kindly,
    Dan Linstedt
