    The speaker was great. There were technical problems with the sound system (a random "scraping/thunking" sound over the PA) that detracted from my ability to focus on the presentation. I hope the video turned out OK. That sound was very distracting.

    The presentation was nicely done. Kept things simple yet dived into just enough complexity that kept me
    engaged. I've been using both for years - but it reminded how powerful it's getting: Compass + Sass Rock!

    I'd also like to know about parking.... There's street parking in the area (Olympic, Centinela, etc.) but it'd be nice if we could park in the deck. Is this open after-hours? And do they validate?

    October 14, 2013

  • Arik

    October 14, 2013
