Also there were several talks on developing applications for emerging markets. I especially enjoyed the one titled, "Building for Billions". The speakers talked about the best strategies for making sure your application is always interactive and responsive for users regardless of network and memory conditions.
All in all, I am very thankful I was able to attend; I know that everyone doesn't get this opportunity. I learned a lot, I drank a lot of coffee, and I met some awesome folks.
