The last two days have been filled with awesome talks of developer communities, code philosophies, merriment, and food consumption. @GitHub pulled off an excellent first @CodeConf and I'm already anticipating the next one. I've laid out my thoughts on a few presentations below plus an embed of some choice tweets from attendees.
