    For an audience familiar with the topics, the presentations were too much about the basics.

    Outstanding (especially as it was arranged so quickly). Good speakers. Challenging topics. Engaged and knowledgeable audience. Very good investment of time. Hope we get more like this.

    Wasn't very specifically about apps, more about IT and cities. The atmosphere wasn't very welcoming: it was more of a walk-in add-on to the larger CEVITTS show.

    Less interesting than I had hoped for
