I've been to the one in Toronto. It's "fun", but not very helpful if you are an advanced user. I also think that this is good for "prototyping" but the actual implementation isn't fast enough to satisfy algorithmic and HFT requirements.
Agree, and adding to what Dibbs said, it wasn't very helpful for a novice user either.

It was quite short and more of a showcase on what Matlab can do but enjoyable all the same.

The free breakfast and demo files provided after the seminar made it worthwhile :)
