Azure Superpowers Tour

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone involved in making this event happen including all attendees, and especially SSW and Adam Cogan for supporting and sponsoring these events, Adam Stephensen for being my wingman or the other way around, and of course my beautiful wife and kids for handling my absence prior and during the tour.

That would be my biggest talk so far, mostly regarding preparation. The delivery went well. I was a bit nervous at first, but not more than usual.
