I just signed up.  I expect some academic detachment from reality, but these
guys look like they might know what they're talking about.  Looks useful to
learn some Rails, Agile, cloud stuff and testing.  They say to expect to spend
between 5 and 10 hours on the course each week.

The textbook is $10 on Kindle.  You also get a Github micro account (private
repositories) and 100 hours of EC2 time after you do the first homework.

Dear Michael G Schwern,

Welcome to the online class for Software Engineering for Software as a
Service! The class will run from February 20 to March 23. We will be having
weekly video lectures, review questions and programming exercises. You can
also participate in our online discussion forum by posting and answering
questions about the course content or the homework assignments.

We have put up content for the first week of class at http://www.saas-class.org/.

Please also forward this email to your friends who might be interested in the
class, as they can still sign up this week.

If you have friends also taking the class, we strongly encourage you to form a
study group to discuss the material and help each other with the technical
content, and perhaps even to get together at a regular time to watch the
videos together. Having a study group can make learning this material easier
and more fun!

Welcome again, and we look forward to helping you become an expert in this topic!

Professors Armando Fox, David Patterson, and the SaaS-class staff
