Yesterday I sent out the invite mails for the YAPC::Europe 2008 Survey. In roughly 24 hours we already have 85 out of 284. Outstanding! Seeing as people are still in the process of returning home and unwinding, I expect there will be plenty more submissions this coming week.
Following a comment from one speaker, I wanted to follow up a point about the survey. Towards the end of the survey is some feedback regarding each talk. Although I was planning to share this feedack with the organisers (2008 & 2009), and the speakers of the respective talks, I wasn't intending that part of the survey to be public. Also keynotes were purposefully missed out.
I have also had some suggestions to improve the survey for next year, which I'm planning on doing, if next year's organisers would like me to.
This year's survey will close at midnight 30th October 2008, and I'll try and get the data to the appropriate people as soon as possible after that. Hopefully the followup reports will be published soon after.
