Attendees - nearly full room (~30 people?)

We took an informal approach to our session, we polled the room asking for
questions, and on request gave an architectural overview and some
code/template walkthroughs, then had open questions/discussion for the
remainder of the session.

Overall it worked quite well, but next time I would like visibility of
some specific questions/topics ahead of time to enable better preparation
of demo/slide content, and also we should have prepared a demo environment
prior to the session to enable easier hands-on examples/demos.

Overall I thought the new track was a good idea, and the feedback I got
from those attending was positive.

The slides we used are linked from this blog post:
