I did not attend this conference, but who needs to when the presentations are uploaded for all and people share their work publically. Sorry to be cynical, but one can not attend all conferences. Credit must go to the R community who are an open and willing people. It from the twitter feed and and the general impression i felt, it seemed like a fun, engaging and comprehensive conference.
