802.11 N - Webinar for AirMagnet

I was lucky to have 10 days at home after the last Seattle training gig.

I spent a portion of the time preparing for the TechMentor conference in San Francisco in a couple of weeks. I've got 4 sessions to teach there, and also prepare a new 'Master' USB drive for all the students. This USB stick has loads of software and training materials that need to be updated.

The rest of the time was in course development. I have a new course coming for AirMagnet on 802.11 N - the latest version of Wireless LAN protocols. This one is very complex. If the previous 802.11b was math it would be addition/subtraction/multiplication/division, and the 802.11g and 802.11a would be like geometry and algebra... but 802.11 N is so complex its like adding Statistics and Calculus at the same time.

So for this first 802.11 N Primer - something to help the students get up to speed on all the vocabulary and a 'toe dip' into the technology. Later as I role out the new 802.11 N one-day class, we'll have more time to get into the "nitty-gritty" of the technology in more detail.
So late Wednesday night I took the last flight out to San Jose, the flight was delayed for 2 hours because of a flight attendant issue, got to my hotel late, then got up on Thursday and went over to AirMagnet offices.

I had a couple of hours in meetings with various tech support, development and marketing folks - then a 'recording session' to tape my Webinar on 802.11 N.
A quick trip... but hopefully the professional recording will sound much better this way for the attendees. Here is a sampling of the topics and slides from the webinar.
