Oh, and we had #GISBabies! For the first time, the conference provided childcare to young professional attendees with small children. It was great to see!

We enjoyed a gorgeous evening outside for our social event and closed the conference with Greg Hanks from the US Census Bureau. Can't wait for CalGIS 2019 and GIS-Pro 2019!
