    Presentation was so impressive. Meet with a lot of front-end professionals. Sponsor venue is very nice also.

    I think this would be better with really really short(truly lightning) presentations(i.e. hard 5min time without Q/A). While the presentations were good, I just want to talk with people.

    I agree with Chris. The main presentation was impressive both technically and aesthetically.

    I thought things were a little disjointed after the main presentation, but meeting everybody was great.

    I think it would be great to hear from a panel of hiring managers red flags they look for in reviewing frontend candidates, overcoming newbie mistakes, OOP JS and optimization of code. I think that would be well attended.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
