Please let us know what you think of the school

This has been great as usual. I appreciated the quality of the tutorials/seminars in this edition.
Great students :) I liked the final presentations!
I learned a lot of new things about state-of-the-art robotics research using the iCub software and
the robot. The organizers (IIT team) were always ready to talk/help.
Everyone at the school was very nice to talk to and helpful. I made good friends from all over the
world. The tutorials were very good, a bit fast :). The talks were interesting.
The school location, the town Sestri Levante was very nice. Italy is a great country, and the food
is very good.
In my opinion the iCub robot is a masterpiece of engineering and also the software YARP/iCub is 
very nice (and there is still so much room for more development).
Veni Vidi Vici 2014 iCub Summer School was great!
The tutorials and the talks was very nice. The hotel and the meeting
rooms was very great, with a constructive and pleasant working relationship :-)
So thank you all very much !!
That was amaizing time in a beautiful place. The food was delicious. Talks and tutorials were very interesting. 
The main value of the school are the people. Everyone is kind, easy to contact and always welcome to help.
I want to thank organizers for the possibility to work on iCub platform with top researchers in humanoid robotics!

I really enjoy my time in VVV; tutorials and talk were very interesting and well done. I learned a lot of new topic about robotics and iCub related stuff. All the guys in VVV, both people from IIT and other students, were really kind and helpful. I think that the school time was a little bit short; if I may suggest you, from a yarp/iCub beginner perspective, introductive tutorials were quite short and a little too fast (too many arguments in short time) and I would probably try to spend more time on these. Furthermore I would have liked to have the tasks assigned as soon as possible so to have more time to spend on it. Thank you so much for the school!! Alessio
