    Speaker was very clear and presented relevant slides.
    It was interesting to determine the kind of database to implement based on use-case and performance consideration rather than automatically think relational dbs.

    It seems it is laid out with a good vision though it has to long way to go ... I will use it in my project to get the real idea about this database.

    I appreciated that he actually used the microphone provided on the podium. Unfortunately, it did tend to overmodulate. Any way to fix that? This was my first meeting and I was impressed with the technical work being done by the two folks up front with the microphone and camera. The seats seems quite jammed together up front where I sat. You might consider having less seats set up initially, spacing them out a bit more generously. This might encourage folks who were way back to move down.

    Anyway, the presentation was pretty good. It would be quite helpful if his slides were available as I didn't have a chance to take notes and he used some terms that I am not yet up on, such as vertical vs. horizontal scaleability. Obviously, his website will be helpful in this regard.

    As for you Eric, while I did appreciate your intro, comments, etc., it would be helpful if you were able to use perhaps a lapel mic because I could hardly hear you and I was seated quite close up front myself.
