    I had a great time and thanks to everyone. Haven't been in front of the projector for a long time so it was a treat to be invited to speak about a product I've put alot of time and energy in and that I truely believe in. I made some new friends and I will definitely attend, and even help out at, the next one. Thanks again..

    It was a perfect event. It was professionally planned, especially with last-minute speaker changes, and each speaker was well prepared. The pizza, drinks, and super cupcakes were thoughtful and welcome additions for a free event. The video projection was well done. The organizers paid a great deal of attention to timing, pacing, and audience involvement.

    Interesting people with interesting apps. Liked the idea of FB Fund group of developers. :-) Thought it was supposed to be Playfish. :-(

    Most focused on the features, and some identified the user experience of the app, and one or two talked briefly about technical infrastructure to support and development of the app.

    What was missing however were the financials that keep them running -- whether that was saved money, ad revenue, mom & dad & friends & family, angels, or FB fund. "How is their financing working" and "How do they balance money issues with development efforts?" these are some of the question and answers missing from discussions of dev'rs from FBfund.

    Would like to see different sessions for the next consecutive meetups: 1. developing your technical infrastructure, 2. best methods of churning through app ideas, 3. dos and donts developing apps, 4. incubator versus angel versus garage/apartment startup - (3 different startup experiences presented in panel format).

    This meeting was more about demos and gear for introductory folks new to FB and building apps. If there was a rating that could gauge the type of users and level of depth of the conversation.
