    LOVED the Heroku presentation. The one on Class-ful Django, while a subject I'm quite interested in, needed to be *much slower* with time to check in with people if they have questions and were grokking the issues being addressed. While I'm a professional Django developer, I had a hard time keeping up with Kenneth.

    Good talks, good food, good beer. My one suggestion is to raise the presenter's screen by a few feet - it was pretty hard to see from the back of the room.
