QLab Skills Sharing Workshop (Newcastle)

Thursday 22nd June 10am - 4.45pm

The morning will focus on developing core QLab skills and is appropriate for anyone who is new-to the software or would benefit from a refresher of best practices. The afternoon session will focus on integrating QLab with the wider show control ecosystem as well as providing a space for attendees to try out features and techniques that could elevate their existing QLab skillset.
