Hello Dr. McCormick,

Thanks for your email.

Would it be possible for Kitware to live-stream this course?

I am also with the live stream. It is a long journey to come from Europe.

Thank you so much, Matt for offering this training.

We would love to have the GitHub repository and presentations, if possible.

Hello Matt,
A newcomer to ITK. Are there plans for a re-do of these courses? Thanks for making these materials freely available and also for other opensource contributions.
