Why should you go to !!Con?

This is what last year's speakers and attendees had to say:

"@bangbangcon was so consistently delightful and awesome the entire weekend through, for the second year in a row." — @gredaline

"@bangbangcon is by far the coolest conference I've been to" — @bcjbcjbcj

"I had a wonderful time at @bangbangcon! Such welcoming people doing fun and fascinating work." — @Bruce_Adams

"one of the finest events I've had the honor to be part of" — @shovemedia

"Had the BEST weekend @bangbangcon! I now want to build and write and make ALL THE THINGS!!" — @kiranb

"I have had an incredible weekend, again, full of wonderful, kind people and fascinating things learned. Thank you so much, @bangbangcon!" — @jczetta

"I want every day to be @bangbangcon, best conference ever" — @ablwr

We think !!Con 2016 will be at least as good!
