General Feedback

A lot of you have used the chance to give feedback to improve the conference, thanks for this. I will follow up with a blog post on the conference, some plans for next year already exist. The first videos from the lightning talks are on youtube, I hope to be able to release the keynotes this week. Currently the harddrives with the raw videos of Track A & E + Keynotes have not reached me.
