Hey Everyone,

Thank you to all who attended both in person and online. I had a blast.
I think that was one of my favorite presentations so far, especially
with all the discussion during it. I love giving presentations, but when
they turn to be more of discussions, that's even better. We even had a
feature request come out of it!
