This is the last session of the event. It has been two days full of interesting presentations, talks and meeting people around the Openbravo ecosystem. In terms of participation it has been a success. Personally, the most relevant aspect has been great that everyone has given feedback in all the sessions is such a positive way and also had a very strong attitude regarding collaboration, sharing and participating in the Openbravo community.
