    For the most part, I learned quite a bit. I did have trouble understanding the Facebook speakers before lunch, as their accents were very thick (and usually accents don't bother me).

    Really liked Paco Nathan's talk with especially the narration of a word count example and how various Functional programming approaches minimize the lines of code. Was a bit disappointed with Apolak's secret recipe stance to "everything". Would be great if all the slides become available for quick references ! Cheers to Sebastian for organizing a great event !
