It truly was an amazing experience to be a part of the group. So much wireless brain power in one room was amazing! Special thanks go to Stephen and Claire for organizing the event, and pulling it off without a hitch. Thank you to all of the sponsors as well for sharing product roadmaps and providing engaging demonstrations and discussions.
A large part of the event was engaging the larger wireless community through blogs and twitter. Thank you to everyone who participated on the Internet, your input and discussion was appreciated!
