    Very informative and the material presented was easy to digest, at least for someone who is not already in this field of work.

    Three very solid presentations, each with valuable insights into developing for great mobile performance. Good luck to Yermo Lamers who is stepping down after running the tech meetups for the past year. Thanks and good luck, Yermo!!

    While some of the topics were outside my area of concern (I don't do native app development), overall the sessions were informative and admirably short, and I enjoyed the up front networking. Thanks for dinner!

    I thought this was stellar, performance should be at the top of every developer's list.

    Well run meetup. I especially enjoyed the physics-based talk about data management, a refreshing change from code-centric technical talks! Fascinating stuff.
