    Anybody and everybody who will attend this must provide updates and lots of them. :-) I thought to try to attend myself but then suddenly remembered that Tuesday is the audit day in my office. So i will be waiting for updates as well as nice/informative/useful bits and pieces from this session.

    But even if someone does go there, I don’t think you’d like have to post anything here. All the CEO’s are going to rant about the amazing experience there on their blogs anyway , hehe.

    But I will try to get some shots =D

    Well the presenters would definitely say that all went well. I want a point of view of the audience. They can truly tell if the session was useful and successful or not. And they can be the best judges on the fact that whether all promised content was delivered or not.

    I will still be waiting to hear the audience’s point of view. :-)
