It can't be overestimated what kind of magic place Mario created at Randa. It is such a focused and supportive environment, that it's hard to not be productive. It generates a sense of community which reaches way beyond the meeting itself, and fuels so much of future work. I have written about what makes this special spirit. But I suspect that the real secret is that Mario runs us on Swiss cheese and chocolate for a week.
So thanks again to the donors, to the sponsors, to the people who wrote code, or text, or took photos, or brought their kids, or organized, or simply provided happiness, or helped in any other way. It was an awesome event.
