Wow. Although I am still pretty tired, I am also still on a HUGE high from the Cropathon. What an amazing event that was! I’m not even sure where to begin because there are just so many wonderful things to say about it!
Let me start by saying a huge thank you to my special guests. They did some amazing demos – I was expecting big things from all of them because I know just how talented they all are but even still, they blew me away with their fantastic projects. If you weren’t able to be there live with us or could only be there part of the day, have no fear! There are recordings of the day!!! I split them up in segments to make them easier to load and view but even so, they’re a bit longer than my typical weekly show and you may need to give them a few minutes before they load fully. I have listed each guest demonstrator under the segment in which they appear.
