Expectations were set for a 3-hour long event (6:30-9:30 as promoted).
Speaker started talking around 6:50 and about 7:35 the time keeper told him "you just have 5 more minutes." The speaker, who had started paced, smoothly, ended by rushing the final slides. "Well, this would take too long to explain, anyway..."
I came thinking about learning Best Practices on Architecting for Amazon WS cloud. Clearly to get that, let me know in advance that I can try to learn from something else.
Made a question but the answer I got gave me the impression that the speaker wasn't much ready for questions.
Thanks anyway. I still look forward to keep meeting with you and your community, guys.

Jeff Barr's Lessons Learned from customers who have designed for the Amazon Cloud was last night's biggest benefit. Nothing speaks more than practical application from others. Both new adopters as well as AWS learns from the customer experience; building upon useful metrics. Another 15 minutes on the presentation would have been helpful, though. The Business Development team was also gracious enough in explaining to me their relationship with the Product Development team.

Should describe the target audience of the presentation (beginner, intermediate, or advanced). I was looking for more advanced info, but presentation was seemingly an quick introduction for people unfamiliar cloud/system architecture. Also it would be better if the presentation could be longer. I believe it was limited to ~45 minutes, which wasn't enough time to present, or ferret-out, real world specifics.
