Some talks that I found particularly interesting were Beka Westberg’s talk on custom fields, Mark Gibson’s talk on advanced typechecking for block connections, Mark Friedman’s talk on asynchronicity and the challenge of a delay block, and the MakeCode team’s talks on block design and debugging.
There are a lot of new features coming to Blockly, and we’re looking forward to being able to incorporate them into a future version of App Inventor.

I also picked up an Android at the Google Store, which is now on display in the App Inventor offices:
