There were other amazing sessions being run which I am really disappointed that I could not attend, for example Tom Sherrinton, David Rogers, Rachel Jones, (Also got to sign a copy of her Don't Change The Lightbulbs book that I contributed a chapter too.) John Sayers, John Tomsett, Lisa Jane-Ashes (Thanks for the book for #TMOxford!) & Samantha Bainbridge, Kerry Pullen, Chris Hildrew, Andy Tharby, Eric Wareham, Chris Curtis, Sian Carter & Jen Ludgate, David Fawcett and Andy Day.  

Thank you to Andy Knill for sharing Session Builder with his fan of Global Solo taxonomy users during the Genius Bar lunchtime sessions.

Overall a massive thanks to David Fawcett and Jenny Ludgate for organising and putting on another amazing event. Well done!
