    Really appreciative of the volunteer effort that went into organizing smoothly run event. The talks were well described, so it was easy to choose the ones most relevant. For me, the two coolest things were Natalie Robb's numbers characterizing adopter attitudes and James Watters' observation that prices are not falling in what is supposed to be a commodity market!

    Wasn't planning on attending the business track, but it was too well presented to miss. Walking by the door, the initial slide caught my attention (something about find customers, sell customers). After that, I was hooked for the day. Speakers were astonishingly well informed, with valuable insights to share. They got my brain fired up with ideas--which is the reason I stayed.

    Great speakers, the ebay speaker describing the architecture was especially. Thank You Sebastian, Dave, Ferhat, James and others for the hard work in organizing this event. And Thank You for not serving pizzas or sandwiches for food. Great event, the speakers were excellent. The booths were very good, learned a lot about DataStax and Cassandra from the booth.

    Great content, good Thai food. Only improvement would be to post the agenda clearly on the MeetUp site ahead of time. The handout for the event was not clearly printed.
