    The topic was timely and relevant.
    The content was excellent.
    The presentation was well prepared and organized.
    Robert did a great job of not talking over everyone's skill level. He is clearly an expert in his field.

    I sat in the middle of the room and could not hear the presenter most of the time. We should have given him a microphone or he should have spoken up.

    Robert was fantastic! Covered the topics at the right level for a user group meeting scenario. A large crowd of people are there at the end of a work day after just eating some food which can lead to a food coma, so deep dives into a technology can sometimes be difficult to follow. Coming at things from a higher level in these meetup situations is usually a much better approach.
