Things I really liked about this conference …

1. Two day conference (fri+sat) but only one day away from work (fri): Makes it much easier to get away from the office without impacting work deadlines!

2. The variety of topics and the quality of the speakers/workshop presenters. Not all about one technology is significant to me.

3. At first the venue struck me as an odd property --- was not clear where to park or where to go for registration. However, the meeting rooms were terrific and the breakfast/lunch/dinner options were pretty good too. Left the event liking the venue.

4. Attendees I met and chatted with were sharp and had interesting life experience to share in the subjects of the technologies were discussing and general workplace and business insights.

Could be improved …

1. The workshop room was far away from all the other speaker rooms; felt disconnected from the event when there.
