    Presentations were well thought out and just long enough. (Powerpoint is not my favorite format....) Many thanks to everybody who organized the program!

    I asked the crowd after the event and sounds like everyone enjoyed the venue and food. The speakers were good but some attendees wanted it to go deeper. Sounds like we have an Analytics Part 2 event in the future. :)

    Great panel and I loved that it did not go on for very long. Each speaker had very insightful things to say and show and presented very well.

    The content was not as in-depth as advertised and was not a panel, as advertised, which would imply discussion between the participants. The first two seemed like advertisements for the respective companies although I did find the How Stuff Works portion interesting.
