The speakers were fantastic. Normally conferences consist of two or three sessions that might be considered useful or interesting. This conference was 2 days of sheer brilliance. If you are in the web development field and you have any interest in standards, accessibility, and usability (which you should) you must attend An Event Apart in one of the cities that it will visit.
I need to decompress a bit before I start telling any stories about the trip. More to come.
