Everyone that I talked to around the conference seemed to be enjoying themselves and said that it was definitely worth it. Which I definitely like seeing. If you were there and *didn't* think so, please, let someone know what we could have done for it to have been better.
Outside of what was done and what the presentations were, etc, the quality of the attendees was top-notch as well. Lots of really insightful questions, even some that were hard to answer. And it was good to meet some people whom I've talked with over the years and yet still not met in person. I was constantly having good conversations with people at the various evening events, between talks, etc. And I think that's sort of the theme -- good conversation, good people.
