    Friendly group. Would have preferred fewer, more in-depth presentations. I would be interested in a longer, more detailed version of Aaron Jorbin's talk on how to contribute to WordPress. Suggested topics for more in-depth presentation: how to help if you think you've found a WordPress bug. What sort of user experience suggestions are helpful and how to provide them.

    Liked the lightning round because they enabled a lot of different topics to be covered in a short time. If you didn't like one, don't worry, the next is just five minutes away.

    I liked the talks on accessibility, project planning, and code basics. The accessibility talk was very effective in delivering the concepts within the lightning format. But I'd really like to attend expanded versions of the project planning and code basics talks.
