Hey thanks for reply

I think it depends on the target of the attending people,
If its more begginer, maybe its too much content for a 3hr module, but for intermediate users clearly can see faster all these topics

Good to see your proposal for node17 Manuel! Allways a pleasure attend to your vvvvorkshops. Hope to see you @ Frankfurt next year!
