SpeedCon 2014 Recap

Posted on

Another SpeedCon in the books and it was a good one! We had a bunch of great presentations including two highly entertaining keynotes, and a yummy lunch and sweet door prizes provided by our vendors. Thanks again to everyone who came out and helped make SpeedCon 2014 possible, whether by presenting, sponsoring, or just being there to take it all in. We’re so grateful!

Two follow-up items to address. If you were a presenter and you had some slides or some helpful notes that you wouldn’t mind sharing please email them to us (Sarah Egan Warren or Jen Riehle) so we can add them to the website. We’d like to make these resources available for anyone who’s interested!

We also love to get feedback on our event. What worked, what didn’t, what was missing, what did you totally love?? We’ve made our evaluation available online; please go fill it out and give us some thoughts on what to aim for next year!

Thanks again to all our participants and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
