    Unfortunately I missed this conference – Any chance that you’re planning another similar talk in the future? I’m very interested in the subject matter.

      Something quite similar to be held on the 28th by another local group. I will announce when they do.

  2. Alan Brusky

    PS Couldn’t find a feedback section for your events? If not there perhaps have one?

    • David Rogers

      You can use the comments section (here) to offer feedback for the event. You can also use the Forum for feedback. If the information you wish to share is not public, I will be sending out evaluation forms to all who signed in.

      This is a change to the paper forms that were used for the prize drawings…which, lets face it, most only filled in to enter the drawing. :)
