Just a comment. I personally find the automation shows produced to be most worthwhile. However, I often find these shows to only scratch the surface of the application. It would be nice to see these applications presented again, but for a different specific purpose or workflow.


Hi Kurtois, I know what you're saying! Perhaps we can revisit this in the future or use some real life examples next time.
