First thing to do is sign up. I'm not sure what it's going to be like
exactly. I would suggest you try and get someone, especially a programmer,
to pair up with as a proper (non-virtual) study partner.

I think a lot of us will be scattered all over the world and many like
myself will be travelling so the only option is a virtual study group where
we can post questions, useful links and help each ddj cell.

Will send you out a form to see where people would like to host the study
group online
