I personally felt last year that the event had lost its community feel ( I have been going for too many years). Maybe it had got too big, maybe there was too much emphasis on sessions and not enough on getting people meeting each other.
The theme this time is "Connect", so hopefully this is a signal that they are going to try and improve things a little.
