GPW2014 & NLPW2014 Survey results

The workshop surveys for the German and Dutch Perl Workshops are now online, and you can see them at the following links:

I'm particularly proud of the Dutch Perl Workshop site, as Theo emailed me just before the event and asked whether it would be possible to have a survey. Within 24 hours, we'd set up the site, and emailed out the first survey links. It's the quickest turn around I've done, and gives me confidence the backend code is as stable as it needs to be for a release.

As such, I'm in the process of tidying up some of the package files, and will be releasing the base site to CPAN soon. I also aim to write a more generic survey creation tool, so that if anyone asks in the future, it will only take an hour or two to set up a site. and get it going.

The hard part is actually finding time afterward to make sure all the text is okay, and no inappropriate comments are made. Thankfully, that is increasing unnecessary, so with the forthcoming YAPCs (NA and Europe), I'm hoping to be able to just press the button and run the scripts to send the emails and create the survey pages.

The more automation the better :)
