      I have Erin and Jake's as well. It takes a while to process, but they're on my hard drive. Erin's is being converted to MP4 so it'll be up probably tonight. Jake's probably won't be for a couple weeks.

      That's great! I have 3-5 presentations recorded as well that I'm working on adding.

    Great job...hope to see it grow.

    Great to learn what everyone is up to. Wonderful speakers. It was a real treat to have Brad Feld return and provide more insights on tech startups.

    Wonderful experience. Thanks to all the organizers!

    I really had a great time. I was so pleased with the amount of talent that gave really great information.

  • Ryan Stout

    Was a ton of fun, thanks to all who helped make it happen.

  • Marvin Blubaugh

    Exceeded my hopes and then some! Well organized and great speakers. Thank you thank you to all involved in organizing, runnin and speaking at this conference! Can't wait for next year.

    The conflict with Sweet Pea was unfortunate. I was unable to attend the Friday or Saturday events.

    August 5, 2012

  • Ken Fichtler

    Excellent classes and a great audience! This was very worthwhile for me, even as a non-developer. The organizers did a fantastic job. I think a speaker on how to market tech startups would be valuable for next year. Ideally, that speaker would be someone who has been very successful at doing so, not one of the dozens of "digital marketers" who run shady affiliate websites.

    Based on some feedback I added BSDC as an event on joind.in. Soon you'll be able to give us feedback and comment on the event. I would also add that we've been on lanyrd as well. Lanyrd is a great social site for conferences.

      I couldn't find it on joind.in. I searched a couple variations, could you post a link? or I did give feedback via meetup.com.

      August 5, 2012

    • Wes

      I haven't used joind.in before, but they seem to be really slow in approving events. Feel free to review the event on Meetup, or if you have likes/dislikes etc. just send your feedback to [masked]

  • Patricia Blubaugh

    Presentations were great! I only wish I could have attended all of them. I enjoyed talking to others with the same passion as I have for learning new things and improving their skillsets and knowledge-base. Looking forward to next year!

    August 5, 2012

  • Ryan Carsten

    Awesome event! Picked up some seriously valuable knowledge. Thanks again to all of the organizers that made this happen.

    August 5, 2012

  • Ashton Sanders

    I had a great time, and learned a lot. There were a great variety of interesting presentations on a variety of technology, theory and business-startup topics.

    August 5, 2012

  • Wes

    A great collection of attendees and speakers.

    August 5, 2012

  • Pat Kujawa

    Loved it! Nice job organizers and presenters. It was great to meet all of the amazing people doing software development around the state. Can't wait to see what comes of this year's connections and for next year's conference!

  • Alton Crossley

    Great first time showing. Looking forward to more. It is hard to keep the business folks and the programmers happy at the same time, but if this is any sign of the next one, I'll be there.

  • Nathan Stephens

    Great conference! Great job Big Sky DevCON planners. Can't wait for the next one!

    If anyone is coming from Whitefish / Kalispell, could you grab me a Monteverde Dark Roast, 5lbs from MT Coffee Traders? https://www.coffeetraders.com/in...­

  • Nathan Stephens

    Can't wait to meet everyone this weekend! Let's connect! If you're on LinkedIn be sure you join this group: http://www.linkedin.com/groups/...­ there are some really great discussions and jobs being posted here daily. It's going to be a great weekend in Bozeman! See you there!

    August 3, 2012

  • Wes

    I would say target 5 - 10 minutes. Although if people get a discussion going, run with it! I was thinking of hosting some UX review sessions for anyone that wants some critiques on anything they're working on.

    August 2, 2012

  • Ryan Stout

    Just curious, how long should a lightning talk be?

    August 2, 2012

  • Ashton Sanders

    If anyone's coming from the Kalispell/Polson/Missoula area. I'll be driving from Polson and have a couple extra seats. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

    July 29, 2012

  • Wes

    Another note for attendees is that we are providing time and rooms in between sessions for anyone who wants to do a lightning talk. So bring your favorite tech subject and tell us all about it!
