The event host, TMC, publishes The HTML5 Report, an “all things HTML5” portal and free eNewsletter. I’d recommend signing up for the newsletter as an addition to your HTML5 arsenal of resources.
There were several key players delivering very informative presentations included Adobe, Google, Qualcomm, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Mozilla, appMobi, Viewbiquity, and RIM. Some of the more interesting topics covered included:

David Schoenbach from Tiggzi delivered a nice presentation and demo showcasing how developers can use Tiggzi to easily integrate AT&T’s SMS API into an application. They’ve been great partners, providing similar demos at AT&T’s Mobile App Hackathons across the country.
The conference organizers will be publishing presentation decks and videos on the conference site in the next few days. Definitely worth checking out!
