The only thing wrong with this, was that it was too short! The keynotes were all great, the message is that enrollment is close to an all time low, especially girl enrollment.
In my opinion, it is our job to get them into our classroom doors. The good news is that all the sessions I went to focused on that. I went to a session on using Games (of course), one on using Dot Net Nuke which might be good for the new class, a sesson on Alice, and a session on using Open Source
Dan Reed was the opening speaker and Maria Klawe was the closing speaker.
Finally food was great, we were fed breakfast, lunch and two snacks.
Definately worth the $40 registration fee and the cost of getting there. By the way, I did it as a day trip and it worked really well, I had booked the first flight of the day and it got me there 10 minutes earlier than scheduled. I hopped in a cab, and got there in no time. At the end of the day, I hopped in to another cab and made it back. There were flight delays due to weather, but I was able to get my reservation booked to an earlier flight, so got home about 20 minutes before my flight actually arrived in Dallas.
