Hi there, WordCampers!
Our feedback surveys for WordCamp Toronto 2011 are now available:
(Update) Here are a few observations we’ve made so far:
We need to do a better job covering all experience levels.
We had presentations for beginners and presentations for advanced developers, but the middle ground — between basic user and advanced theme/plugin development — was lacking. Based on this feedback, we’re going to tweak our program plan for next year.
George Brown College is a great venue.
Spacious and accessible, this location was perfect for WordCamp presentations.
Minimize, or remove, the steps required for internet connectivity.
Wireless access was a headache for numerous people. We caught wind of this early, but not early enough – rest assured that this will be at the top of our list for 2012!
The food was fabulous.
Saturday’s breakfast and lunch went over very well.
Installing server software, first thing on a Sunday? Let’s not do that again.
We hear you guys on this one, and we definitely agree. Local installations of WordPress are great (and useful!), but scrambling through the process on a Sunday? Not so much. We’re going to review our approach to workshops for next year. We want everyone to enjoy the hands-on experience of working with WordPress!
Saturday’s schedule (45 minute sessions, 15 minute breaks) was perfect.
Sessions were just the right length, and with the 15 minute break, there was enough buffer time for people to get between classrooms.
Remember, all feedback is anonymous, so be honest with your comments! Your constructive criticism will help us make WordCamp Toronto 2012 even better.
