Your comments

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.

In General

DrupalCamp has just completed its sixth event and despite the snow we had a great turnout and amazing feedback from people at the event itself and through our website. Once again we’ll have a retrospective in April to reflect on the event and discuss potential changes for next year.

CxO Day

Structure/format

Over the last six years the format and speakers of the CxO day have varied, from Drupal specific to business/sector leaders we’ve hosted a wide range of speakers. For future years we can investigate showcasing Drupal and its abilities more, or allowing more facilitated discussion/networking sessions.

Weekend

First time attendees/Networking

It’s great that every year first timers attend. Meeting a large number of people for the first time can be intimidating, and for those that have never been to a camp or a Con activities like BoFs/Sprints can be confusing. Next year we’ll look into having a guided session or some way to help first timers get involved over the weekend.

Sessions

Whilst sessions did seem to be improve this year (particularly with the prerequisite field) we understand that content and level can vary. In order to have a wider range we’ll need to work on encourage more people to submit sessions on a wider range of levels and topics. Any ideas and suggestions to help improving sessions would be more than welcome, thanks!

Lunch

Previously we’ve always had packed lunches both days, we tried something new this year with a hot buffet on the Sunday. Due to a late finishing session and a miscalculation on quantity some people missed out on this. We’ll revert back to sandwiches next year again and make sure any special requirements can be entered on the website.

Social

The social night has always been busy, this year we booked the whole pub and it seems it still wasn’t enough! We’ll look at other bigger venues nearby and help make the night more approachable to first timers.

Thank You!

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.
