This was originally scheduled as a keynote type event. This would have been better to accommodate more people and show the importance of getting attendee feedback. Otherwise though the smaller room meeting worked out well.

Thanks for pointing out the lack of rating capability, Michael, we’ve fixed that. Thanks too for your feedback and suggestions, we appreciate it! Please let us know (tweet, survey, email, more comments here) if you have additional thoughts.

Hmm, ironically I can’t rate this session but thanks for having it. It seems that the leadership is going to actively work on the feedback shared by participants next year.

As a repeat attendee, oscon is a year-round event. From planning for the next to sharing from the last, oscon lives for twelve months. How can we build the long-term oscon community?
