1. The Davenport, FL area is terribly un-GPS documented. MS Maps, Google Maps, my GPS and Starbuck’s web site all gave incorrect directions to a Starbucks, a Walmart, and the conference hotel
  2. Gregg Pollack makes awesome slides
  3. Electricity is a rare and precious commodity at a Ruby conference
  4. Ruby is playdough. Java is legos
  5. Code Just in time, not in case
  6. NeverBlock can be useful for more than just database connections
  7. C/C++ can be inlined in Ruby
  8. Even after 8 hours of Ruby classes, I still want to code until 2 in the morning
