    I thought the presenters would have had more experience with the solutions they were presenting. The meeting ran way over time and I had to leave due to time constraints. Audience questions were not really moderated and some questions kept being asked over and over again. The meeting itself could also have been moderated better to keep the presenters on track, too. Overall I was disappointed in this as a learning experience.

    Excellent meeting comparing different plug-ins. Presenters were knowledgeable and accessible, answering many questions. Well worth the trip

    Great topic, but ran too long with too much detail, especially in the demos.

    Seemed to be a very wide range of people completely new to web technologies and those who develop in web. Not sure how to handle both crowds effectively though.

    Being a graphic designer trying to learn the bigger picture of website development, it's so good to just listen to the conversations, questions and instructions from developers- it expands my vocabulary and understanding so much- thanks for your time in making these gatherings possible.

    Thanks to @theoriongroup http://orionweb.net & @cart66 http://cart66.com for sponsoring the evening. Too much pizza is never a bad thing, right?

    Any requests from the attendees? Right now my favs are jigoshop, ecwid, woo-commerce, & cart 66.
