There were four of us involved in the planning and running of the build. We put a fairly large amount of effort into planning the event, particularly with respect to how to kit up the SMD parts and organize the build process with close to 30 people attending.
Thanks again to Ian for his enthusiasm for the build and for sending Dangerous Prototype stickers for everyone who participated!
Thanks Scott! Via the comments.
