    Excellent conference. Every speaker I heard was expert on their topic and kept things interesting. A couple of them touched on the importance of responsive design and more talks on the impact of mobile would have pushed my review to 5 stars. But, really, my overall experience was fantastic, so I almost didn't mention that.
