Comments on prior ORF (October Rules Fest) programs:
"As a developer, ORF 2008 and 2009 were a real treat. The presentations were excellent, but it was the informal chats that really set these conferences apart. If you want access to some of the brightest minds in this field, you'd be hard-pressed to find a friendlier setting for it." Gary Riley, CLIPS Inventor
