YAPC Surveys Online
Posted by on 26/02/2009

Since YAPC::Europe in 2006, when Birmingham hosted the annual european Perl conference, YAPC::Europe has run a survey among the attendees. The data and feedback have been very useful for organisers to see where their audience's interested are, and where they perhaps should be. The results of the 2006 and 2007 surveys have been previously published, but there was no single central source to record all that information.

As such, the website YAPC Conference Surveys was launched this week, to act as a focal point for the past and future surveys. For 2009, alongside YAPC::Europe, the YAPC::NA will also be running a survey after the event. In addition both conferences will be featuring the ability to feedback on talks, tutorials and master classes, so that speakers can get a better understanding of how their presentations went.

See the YAPC Conference Surveys website for more details.
