Having just returned from Hero Conf, I wanted to jot down some additional notes besides my session notes that I took on my laptop. I don’t report to a boss, so these notes are just for my own future use; but I figure other people may have to write a short report for their higher-ups to justify the trip. So I put together a quick template and structured it so it can be used within a corporate environment, too.
