Regarding London Perl Workshop 2018 specifically, please answer the following as best you can.
When did you decide to come to this conference?
|22||I've attended several London Perl Workshops previously|
|3||After London Perl Workshop 2017|
|1||After reading a blog post about the London Perl Workshop|
|1||I was nominated to attend by manager/colleague|
|3||I was recommended to attend by friend/colleague|
|0||After reading the Perl Weekly|
|0||After seeing a link or advert on a Perl specific website|
|1||After seeing a link or advert on a non-Perl website|
|1||After seeing a link on Twitter, Facebook or other social media website.|
|2||After reading an email sent to a mailing list I was on|
|0||After seeing other promotions online/in the press|
- I try to visit as many Perl events as I can afford
- promoted at TPC Europe Glasgow
Were you a speaker?
|9||No, but I have spoken before at similar conferences|
|10||Yes, and I have spoken before at similar conferences|
|2||Yes, and it was my first time as a speaker|
Note that "similar conferences" includes other Workshops and/or Perl Conferences, as well as Linux, Open Source or large technical events.
If you were a speaker, would you have been able to attend if you hadn't been speaking?
If you weren't a speaker, would you consider speaking at a future conference?
|7||Ask me later|
What was your motivation for coming?
|8||the list of speakers|
|9||the quality of the talks scheduled|
|7||to be a speaker|
|22||to meet with Perl/project co-contributors|
|30||to socialise with Perl geeks|
|4||to visit London|
- I didn't need to get a visa because I had one after visiting TPCiG
- I'm an organizer
- It's just what I do every year.
- to learn more about Perl and particularly this year, Perl 6! (Loved the dedicated Perl 6 track.)
- to seek a job
- To sponsor the event
What aspects of the conference do you feel gave value for money?
|34||the talks / speakers|
|12||the conference venue|
|9||the city of London|
|13||the hallway track|
- hosting the RPerl booth/table
- Social events in pubs
What kinds of talks would you prefer at future London Perl Workshops?
|5||More beginner level talks|
|1||More intermediate level talks|
|6||More advanced level talks|
|19||It's about right|
Are there any topics you would specifically like to see featured?
- A separate track of beginner talks and/or experience stories (i.e. getting things wrong, and learning how to fix them), would be great. It helps the newcomers and those learning Perl to see talks that aren't necessarily advanced, but still engage them.
- I am always interested to see what people want to talk about.
- I was unable to go this year due to flu. The above is what
- I'd like to see if anyone is using perl to start a new business or use it in an entrepreneurial way.
- I've ticked beginner because more people need to 'get' Perl, it has a bad rep for those that don't know it.
- If there has appeared a Perl implementation of openid connect since I last looked for it a talk on that would be good. Otherwise web devs may tend toward Python.
- Machine Learning
- more applications featuring Modern Perl ecosystems. it's one more way for me to hear about new things
- More on how to do good web development with Mojolicious, Dancer (though Andrew covers this well), Catalyst actually - I really don't know Catalyst well at all. Getting more out of CPAN perhaps? There are so many great modules / distros. I think we need to do more to get people using Perl web software and training up new devs as a community. Maybe more beginner level talks is the way to go?
