CodeCampSA 2007 - More reflections
A few more things that have come to mind.
- Lunches seemed a bit rushed. I was surprised to see that Wagga's schedule only allowed 30 minutes for lunch too.
Even though I liked the BBQ, they did appear to have problems keeping up with demand - eg. the second tray of cooked food came out just as we were heading back in.
- Not enough time for questions. Most sessions probably ran over-time (I suspect I was guilty of this too). Having a consistent 5 minute warning would probably help everything keep on track better.
- A better web site. I'm not convinced that the "news" page on ADNUG's site was the best place to promote the event and session times. Carl and Richard from DotNetRocks seem to agree - I was pleased that the event was promoted on their podcast, but they commented a number of times about the lack of information on the web page.
I'm thinking it either needs its own independent web site, or see if we can have a space on CodeCampOz.
Don't get me wrong, while I've listed things that I think could be improved, I did enjoy the weekend and got a lot out of it!
