    The variety of projects discussed were extremely interesting and I will most definitely take some of the knowledge from this discussion into my next project. It is interesting to see how various people prototype and the tools they use for it. Thanks again for organizing a great discussion UX Akron & Akron/Canton Web!

    I've not been to the ABIA before, is there a parking lot for the building, or suggested parking? I always seem to park about 9 blocks away from where I'm trying to go in Akron.
