How did you hear about us?
(Does not sum up to 100% because some people gave more than one answer, and the answers that appeared only once are not included)

Favourite answer*: Dzizas, nie pamiętam. Od 3 lat jeżdżę. (Hardly translatable, but let's try: Geez, how would I remember, it's my third time here...)

Are you satisfied?

Will you come next year?

31%

Good to hear that even those (few) of you who were not satisfied with this year's GeeCON are giving us a second chance, stating that you might still come next year! Then again, every 'no' is a sign for us.

The top 5 best speakers, according to you are (speakers' scores have been counted by subtracting the sum of their 'worst speaker' votes from their 'best speaker' votes ;) ):
  1. Kevlin Henney
  2. Adam Bien
  3. Sam Newman
  4. Thomas Sundberg
  5. Andrea Provaglio
Kevlin Henney wins hands down, and his performance is best summarized with the following participant comment: Closing lecture was pure gold.

Suggestions and general comments:

About the venue: most of you seem to like the idea of having a conference in a cinema, but there were some complaints. Fist of all, we are aware that the lack of a cloakroom was an inconvenience. We will organize one next time, sorry about that! I guess after last year's heat nobody expected that people would be wearing jackets in May. We will also remember that most of you like to 'eat with two hands' and so will try to get more tables. As for the beer demand... we will see. Why not! :)

Most of those who participated in the survey would like the University Day to consist of hands-on workshops lasting the whole day instead of just longer, tutorial-style lectures.

Apparently, we exaggerated with the number of simultaneous sessions, making people feel that they were missing on something else. We hereby acknowledge this fact, together with the suggestions that sessions should be divided by subjects, preferably ones completely disjoint. It might be a good idea to create the schedule based on votes of people who want to see particular presentations/sessions.

Other important subjects that you raised:
  • student discounts
  • access to videos from previous GeeCONs: those are ready to see here
  • more men's toilets
  • fruit instead of cakes (and to that my female heart and 5 extra kilos applaud fiercely)
  • a hackathon (maybe instead of one of the parties?)

To sum this up

We are always aiming to provide the best GeeCON experience possible. Your input is very valuable to us an we cannot thank you enough for taking your time to fill in the survey. We would also like to thank for all the kind words you've sent us in the survey.

We are sending e-mails to those lucky that have won a t-shirt / free ticket for the GeeCON 2013 - make sure to check your inbox (and just in case a spam folder). There is a total of 6 of those.

Since writing a GeeCON review blog post is (or so we think) a major effort we have decided to reward each submission sent to testimonials@geecon.org with a t-shirt. Please send us your shipping address and the t-shirt size.

See you next year!!!
* Adam's favourite quote from the surveys is "Koko koko GeeCON spoko", which would be hard to translate as well
