I would definitely recommend this if you're interested in the nuts and
bolts of the Pi or what their vision is. I was at the analogous event
in Staten Island (NYC) and found Rob to be very knowledgeable in all
aspects of the project. You can push him on technical things
basically as far as you want (as an example, there were some guys from
Staten Island doing USB work in the Linux kernel who were discussing
with Rob how to improve the USB stack for the Pi). He's also a good
person to ask about which parts are free software and which aren't and
why (and how hard they'd be to rewrite).
If you have particular questions about what the session would be like,
I may be able to answer them.
