YAPC::NA 2010 Survey Results

I've just sent out the speaker mails, which contain all the feedback and evaluations for all the talks. As not all the presentations received feedback, some emails just note that the talk had no responses. If you were a speaker and haven't received a mail (there should be one for every speaker, regardless of the number of talks presented), please let me know, and I'll investigate.

This year YAPC::NA had 305 registered attendees, with …

YAPC::NA Survey Closed

The YAPC::NA 2010 Surveys have now closed. I'm now reviewing the data to produce the emails for speakers, the website pages for results for public consumption and the feedback documents for organsiers. If all goes well expect to see some postings tomorrow.

YAPC::NA 2010 Survey : Final Week

For the last few weeks the YAPC::NA surveys have been running. In that time we've had received a total of 94 Conference Surveys submissions and 431 Talk & Tutorial Evaluations. While that is certainly a great response, we'd like more. Out of 298 attendees, that's only 31% of possible responses, while last year we managed 45%. So, if you haven't responded so far, please think about doing so. A mail has gone out to all those attendees who haven't responded yet, containing their personal keycode login, so please check your spam filters if you haven't received it. If can't find a copy of the…
