In the early days of my career, I wondered why software engineers and their managers occasionally traveled when we had email, instant messaging, wikis and video conferencing. Gradually, I've figured out that face-to-face meetings facilitate trust, collaboration and unity more effectively.
For me, the success of this conference re-emphasizes the value of face-to-face communication. Now I'm going to google "why face-to-face".
