My impressions

The talk was good and full of information. It was hard for me to pay attention because I had seen the talk last week in practice. So it was fresh on the mind and it was the end of a long day. I was also about to run out of power on my device. So I walked around with the mic for Q&A instead of including Q&A in the blog post.
