The first was really trying to nail that elevator speech. I felt that the more I repeated it the more sense I made. I still have trouble really "defining" what YDEV is but this practice really helped.
The second thing that was really great was seeing students from CFHS. It was really cool first off to see so many there and then being able to talk to them and connect with them about YDEV. I think it helps to see a familiar face.
