    Good lineup of presentations. The crowd in the back could have been a bit quieter to respect the presenters.

    Still fun to come talk to people but the weather made things tough in that space. Could have done a better job managing the crowd during presentations an perhaps taken a break after you lost the crowd, let them talk then called everyone to order for the second half of presentations. I heard Areo was pretty cool but honestly the cat people lost me. Props for having kittens, though. I'll be back!

    It was good, some of the presentations could have been better, the room could have been quieter when the presenters were speaking. Overall it was good. Some more mixer type events could have added to the level of networking connections.

    The initial talk was way too long and so were the demos. I did love getting to see how big the community is and connecting with a few people.

    Great location. Free t-shirts. Nice demos. Wish people would respect the speakers and quiet down during the presentations.
