Drush Alias'

I can do a lightning talk on drush alias' and using it with remote servers.

Basically showing people how cool it is, for instance sql-sync and sqlc, so they attempt to learn more about it and integrate it into their workflow. I don't know everything about drush but I know how to do this and think it is very valuable to developers using dev/staging/live servers with their workflow.

Thanks Elijah - I'll add you
