Yesterday we hosted an all-day programming conference... our first-ever conference and what a day it was!
Being a virtual event we were able to reach people across the globe, from Moscow to Seattle, to Berlin, to Spain, Manchester and London and many more!
The positive vibes and interaction on the day made us feel all fuzzy inside; just seeing the amazing community which we are so fortunate to be a part of was incredible. The whole day there was a real buzz, we received great feedback from you all about the talks in the main conference room, we loved seeing the discussions and live code examples happen in the meet the speakers, virtual hallways and you all took to Twitter to share your where you were watching from and of course your thoughts!
We were astonished when we thought that one of you was watching while flying an aircraft! But after some giggles and concern for safety, we were assured that his feet were actually firmly on the ground!

And the difference in time-zones didn't stop you guys! It was a long day but too good to miss!!
You all LOVED the talks...
