Hi Johanna and the whole team,

yes! I heard a lot of great feedback!
This was a great success for our projects attending and I heard from 
several projects that we made great progress. So in my view money well 
spend and I would definitely support to do it again for AppSecUS.

And let me say a big THANK YOU to you and the whole team for organising!

Thanks a lot!

All the best, Tobias
