What are some of the best conferences, events, summits etc you have ever been?

SydStart in Sydney was pretty good. It's now called Startcon. More of a startup than a maker thing though.

What did you like about it? I personally didn't rate it highly and haven't been back so curious what I missed that others liked.

Met a heap of cool founders when I was there. Some good presentations too. Probably a bit heavy on the "investor" side of things, but I thought it was worthwhile.

WordCamp Johannesburg was fantastic. I learned lots, made lots of friends and got lots of cool swag.
