    Overall the presentation was informative as well as reinforced key concepts and best practices. Based on the feedback from others in the group and judging by the wide degree of experience of the group, I would suggest that the next presentation be more "soup-to-nuts". We first need to explain the context in which we are operating; the "why". We then need to ease into the "nitty-gritty" and provide some real world, hands on examples. I look forward to the next Meetup!
