    Hi all,

    The feedback is appreciated and I agree with most of it. I need to caveat that the site was designed and developed in less than 3 weeks. Rally did the site for free in exchange for being a sponsor.

    There will be a second release in a few weeks with more content, FAQS, and speaker announcements — and bug fixes. ( ie. fixed broken links — those are supposed to go to different sites that we didn't build and they don't have DNS pointing yet, E. 1 and gallery aren't even being hosted ATM )

    Also, some of the code ( CSS & and tiny bit of JS ) was written by me ( I had never written any CSS or JS before starting this site ). So expect to find a mess in there.

      I'd argue that since this is the third one of these in less than a year, it's very much a product.

        Valid point. It is what it is (short timeline). Done is better than perfect. There have been tons of invite requests today already, so we're stoked on that.

          It's a rockin' site and our entire agency was looking at it on Friday. Especially for a quick release, you should be super proud. Also, and this is always huge with the industry, congratulations on making a site that doesn't look like anything else we've seen lately.
