      The synergy between developers, business people, and teachers makes POSSCON pretty unique, I haven't really seen this anywhere else.

      It was very nicely run and I think you did a bang-up job. You should all be proud of what you did.

      This is like nothing you've ever seen before.  You can look at the pictures, you can watch the videos... but just like a concert, you have to be there.
