If you weren't a speaker, would you consider speaking at a future conference?
|6||Ask me later|
What was your motivation for coming?
|9||the list of speakers|
|8||the quality of the talks scheduled|
|6||to be a speaker|
|13||to meet with Perl/Raku/project co-contributors|
|19||to socialise with Perl/Raku geeks|
|1||to visit London|
- talks / learn (cant really pre-tell quality, maybe "subjects" would be better?)
What aspects of the conference do you feel gave value for money?
|24||the talks / speakers|
|19||the conference venue|
|5||the city of London|
|12||the hallway track|
- The beer.
What kinds of talks would you prefer at future London Perl Workshops?
|0||More beginner level talks|
|2||More intermediate level talks|
|8||More advanced level talks|
|10||It's about right|
Are there any topics you would specifically like to see featured?
- Introducing young people to the Perl family Making the on-ramp smoother / easier to access Developing the Perl brand
- Machine learning, game development
- Talking about personal or professional technical projects - what challenges were faced, how did you plan or approach it, thoughts and comments.
- Would like to see more intermediate, even strong-intermediate content. I know its quite hard to find when people need to suggest things from their own content. However, I noticed that there was less of this type of material than in the previous two events I had attended. For me, it would be great to see something like "how to do perl properly", in a modern (enlightened) style. Also, how to use toolkits properly, in conjunction with cloud and in a co-operative microservice environment (like on the end of pub-sub). Where the perl5 language is going would also be useful to know (but impossible to answer right now).

3 = Somewhat un-satisfied
4 = Very un-satisfied
5 = N/A
