So I was looking through the available sessions and I was hoping someone could help shed some light on what all the different characters mean in the Session ID. For instance, if we take the first session listed for Tuesday...

ATC-B206

I understand that the first 3 letters designate the track. In this case, ATC stands for "Architecture & Trustworthy Computing".

I am assuming that the number after the B is for level. In this case, 2 would be for "200 - Intermediate". I am also assuming that the last 2 numbers are just a unique identifier for this session in this track and level.

So what does the B stand for? Does it signify that this is a Breakout Session? What exactly is a Breakout Session?

 

What about the following Session IDs:

MDC-IL201
MDC-IL305-R

What does the IL stand for? Is is Instructor-Led Lab? What is the trailing R stand for on the second Session ID?

 

Thanks for your help!
