    My first attendance, so I didn't go in with too much expectations. Good to see the web industry so strong. Overall it's a great event.

    I thought the number of presentations was about right at 4, liked having the longer break in the middle for pizza & beer, rather than 2-3 shorter breaks. The time to mix and talk with people is important as well as the presentation, maybe it'd be good to have the chance for small group follow-ups to the presentations?

    Didn't really learn anything this time around. Can't be perfect every time though! Of course, there's always the making friends and drinking beer thing which kept me quite happy :)
