Is there a way we can receive a list of all the great songs that were used between sessions?  I have some of them but a full list would be awesome and some great band I never heard of before!

The @MSIgnite twitter handle posted the playlist on Spotify. Thanks for spotting it @Amy Dolzine!

This link should work: https://t.co/zrGjcO7p0d

@Michael Kophs - any info you can share about the playlist.
@Amy Dolzine, you were interested in the Ignite playlist as well!
Hey Gary, honestly, I would have no idea where to even begin to track down this info. Sorry :(
That might be a good information popup as part of that ginormous screen in the venue.

Question 6: Have any photos to share? We want to see your selfies!


Final question is posted here!

The Beam Robots were awesome. Great to see many friends from the US and around the world who couldn't physically attend join us virtually.
Hanging out in Hall C! Also loved the patio area. And one million drive by hugs of everyone to connect with folks I haven't seen for ages!

Question 7: Are you planning on attending next year? Pre-registration is open!


Any additional feedback you would like to share?

I think there was a lot of nice stuff there, but the proximity to the rest of C2 sort of didn't make this area it's own space, and thus seen as a destination. Maybe there... Read More

@Prayer Solanky Remember how we met Natalie from Australia? How amazing was that!

It would be great to be able to pull the session up onto a laptop or at home on a PC and follow along with demos and such. There are times when it's very hard to see when you're in the room and the font sizes are very small.
