    Maybe it's good to have some "introduce your self" minutes for new comers?

    I enjoyed the broad range of speakers. This format is difficult to do well; overall it was good.

    I like the lightning talks - there's something for everyone, and if a speaker isn't that good, well, you're on to the next one in 5 minutes.
