Thanks again to all who attended - and to those who planned to attend or attempted to attend but could not due to the incredible traffic snarl on 202 - and to the organizers and sponsor.  After years of participating in Agile Philly meetings, it was a pleasure and an honor to present and hopefully help others learn as I have through this wonderful community. I am available for follow-ups here or directly if anyone is interested.
