I have been helping in various capacities with Agile Games for 3 years and can tell you that without a doubt that this conference is like no other I have been to.  The positive energy emitted by all those there; the Presenters, The Volunteer Staff and Attendees is amazing!  Not only that, it is repeatable!  This year we started registration before we even had a program and presenters lined up, and people registered.  We kept group rates static throughout the sales period to allow teams to sign up at the last responsible moment - and they came!  We also had more than double the number of Presenters from last year without raising ticket prices.  Have we perfected the Agile Games Conference?  Hardly!  Feedback is king, and we have a lot to process; inspect and adapt is a core principle, right?

I want to personally thank everyone who contributed to the success of this event, many people gave up a lot of their personal time volunteering and I appreciate that.  Most of us will need to "catch our breath" after an incredible 3 days, before starting preparations for next year.
