I'd really love to attend this event, I just wish I lived somewhere near Denver. I've been using Drupal in Education for nearly 7 years now. It would be great to connect with some of the people using Drupal.

Same goes for me, David. I remember making my very first steps using Drupal platform like 5 years ago, since then we moved to other ones as well, but you can't really forget your starting point anyway. I would like to attend events like this one. Do you have any post event articles with thesis which I can read?
