Demo Day at 2011 IEA Retreat

Saturday was a full day of hands-on demos. Each participant of the retreat could sign up to sit in at one demo and work at that particular project, then you could move on to watch the other demos.
At the same time the vendors had set up at one end of the room, so it was all quite hectic and loud, but there was an immense amount of information going around, so everyone just dived in and enjoyed the melee…;-))

Here are some pictures:
