It’s been just over a month since the event.  I’ve tried to write this post many times, but I haven’t been able to put into words just how cool the event was.  It was a physically and emotionally exhausting weekend.  It was also incredibly satisfying.  I met some amazing people, had some great conversations and came away from the event inspired.  At one point during the event, I sat down with Dave Giard for one of his “Technology and Friends” interviews.  Dave also did a great job of summarizing that talk as well as the camp itself in this post.

Running an event like this was extremely challenging, but the planning team I pulled together did an outstanding job.  Things ran very smoothly and I’m so grateful for the dedication people like Todd Bohlen and his wife showed to make sure everyone had food and drinks for the entire weekend.  There was some drama over the weekend as we realized we had some team assignment issues, but quick meetings and developers who wanted to help solved those pretty quickly. 

Patrick Steele put together this awesome video of the event.

While it took me a few days to recover, I am looking forward to the event next year.
