    Lots of small helpful tips, and very encouraging "We Can Do It" messaging.

    The topics were all pretty interesting, even if some of them were a bit rushed. My favorites were the "this is how my cool project works" type!

    AWESOME I love the quarterly WWC lightning talks. I had such a great time speaking too, and meeting new folks.

    Looking forward to tomorrow's talks. I am the founder of a start-up focused on much better photo sharing for families. We're looking for a Ruby expert to join us in bootstrap mode. Our beta is live ( will get you past the need for an invitation). Drop me a line if you'd be interested in touching base before or after the Lightning Talks.
