    Main presentation was AWESOME! So sorry there were people there who had never even USED Google+ asking kind'a ridiculous questions. But the presenter, Will Norris, handled them unbelievably well.

    Insight into what the creators were thinking (and are dreaming about) was super helpful (and interesting!) in using the API and knowing how to program for it both now and for future use (by seeing their trajectory-of-thought).

    SO glad I went, SO! glad Mike put this on, and very glad Google was willing to host us.

    It looks like it has great potential.

    Sadly, I was fairly disappointed.
    I wanted to see examples coded in front of me. I can always go through the documentation yes, but I want to see someone work through an example on the board and ask questions in process. I understand the time constraints but I have been to several events involving Microsoft, programming language, and gaming technologies and have not had this experience. I am disenchanted by the "obviously" approach used in these technology meetings. In the future something to change would be to try using the "show me" approach and take much less to assumption.

    I also wanted to see examples of the Google+ API which includes hangouts but is not exclusive to hangouts. The fact the majority of the presentation was spent going over hangouts and in PHP at that was also disheartening.

    Hangouts sound much like an app that was done during the recent Hack-a-thon. Pretty cool.

    The introduction to the various API's was something I can really use.

    Great Meeting from my prospective!

    Great! Cutting edge stuff. Real working demo.
    Excellent intro. Well-motivated and clearly sequenced.
    Well-supported alpha software: backed up by online intro projects and resources, Google staff online and in-person. Google actively seeks early adopter feedback.
    Google+ is already working and supporting new use cases.
