I followed my own advice from my DrupalCon for n00bs post, and took part in some great sessions, checked out a BOF, ran a BOF of my own and hung out a bit in the Exhibition Hall. I loved finding out about Symfony and Drupal 8 and am super excited about what the combination has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised by the attendance in my BOF.
