Grid Primer - Pawel Plaszczak

I (MN) attended this for two purposes:

I found the session really useful. It was pitched just right for me (if I had have been a "manager" who did not know any background about the grid, I doubt if I'd have followed a huge amount, though). But I filled in quite a few gaps. I have the notes/slides if anyone wants to borrow them.

Began by talking about the kinds of projects that he's been involved in recently.
