Thank you all once again for coming to the camp and sending up your feedback. Firstly your answers to our questions:
Comparing the final two questions to last years:
It’s great to receive so much feedback and whilst mainly positive it’s good to review negative to help us improve. Amongst the feedback were a few common themes of which we’ll address below. If you would like any more information Tweet us and we’ll see what we can do.
Drupalcamp has just completed its fifth event and we’re proud to say we host the biggest camp in Europe.
The event organisers are having a retrospective in mid April to reflect on the event and improve it for next year. From then onwards we’ll be looking for people to get involved or share their ideas. All of which will be announced on Twitter.
We do our best to announce speakers and topics as far in advance as possible, but changes in speakers timetables means we have to be as flexible as possible. We will try and get a balance of Drupal specific talks alongside other industry topics and going forward we will do our best to firm up the options as far ahead of time as we can.
We’re blown away by the hugely positive comments about City’s new space we’re using. It was the first time we held it there so we know there are a couple of kinks to work out. When booking for next year we’ll review the possibility of additional ‘quiet’ space and more seating/space for coffee breaks/lunch.
The sessions are selected by committee with the names/companies blanked out. While this may result in someone gaining multiple session slots and another person gaining none we feel this gives the fairest option as topics are judged on content only. It’s always difficult to judge how popular a session will be, so this may result in some being overbooked - in this case you will always be able to select another session and catch up on the missed session via our YouTube channel.
The social is always popular and we manage to take over the pub. We may be able to book the whole pub next year, providing more space to chat and move around - we’ll keep you updated via Twitter.
Using the newest part of the uni means it was the first time we’ve had to go through a few things across the weekend. We’ve seen what did and didn’t work well with the space and will be looking to see what improvements we could make with our registration process along the way.
Once again we thank for you not only for attending but also for giving us feedback. We’ve received and heard some great comments about the venue, volunteers, speakers, sessions and every other aspect of the event. We’ll look forward to hearing from you throughout the year and to seeing you at the next camp.
