Notes from retrospective

Move to a more typical BarCamp weekend schedule (Fri-Sun)

Break in between each session slot (15-30min)

Review the schedule more frequently (during each break)

Get indication of topics and requests before the event

Replay hot sessions multiple times in the day

Clean up the "registration" process a bit and offer incentives to register early to get a more accurate count
