My students' thesis defense

Since last summer, I had been coaching Cindy, Jzel, and Alisa -- students in my open source technologies class -- in osCommerce. Early on, they had identified a project involving e-commerce to by their thesis; our classes over summer gave them the opportunity to work on their project well before their other classmates got started on theirs.

Yesterday, I received great news: they passed their thesis defense, the first group to do so in three days' worth of rigorous panel interviews.
