    Alessandro, great to see you wrote about this! 🙂 It was an excellent event, the facts speak louder. I’m happy to say that I was speaking on the same event too ;)! Looking forward to contribute for this year’s (2011) mk code camp event and I hope we will at least reach the same numbers we did in November 2010.
    Thanks.
