wow. spoke in front of 2,500 people (in Spain!)

just came back from OFFF conference in Barcelona, Spain.
Wow, what a conference! Total of about 3,000 attendees and speakers, from all over the world. I met some of the coolest people there. And of course, ate really REALLY well.

My lecture took place last Friday, in front of 2,500 people. I am used to public speaking, but it was probably the biggest crowd I have ever spoken to. I was glad it was received well. Thank you for those who came to talk to me after, as well as writing nice e-mails and Facebook posts.

Thank you  Barcelona. I would love to come back again. Hopefully, soon!
