  WARNING: i'm going to try very hard to not make this sound like
marketing, so here goes.

  i'm setting up to schedule a bunch of training courses in ottawa
starting in the new year -- git, docker, some embedded linux stuff,
openembedded/yocto project -- at a new training facility downtown.

  normally, i would schedule to teach during the regular work week,
but someone whose opinion i respect suggested i try offering some of
the 1-day courses on the weekend, rationale being that a lot of people
are just too busy during the week and, if they're mission-critical,
their employers may not be able to let them loose for the day.

  i've never tried offering any sort of training on a weekend, and i
suspect that would only make sense in the case of a single-day course
on a saturday, but who knows?

  does this idea sound like it would fly?
