  • My talk was standing room only also, but I sort of like the intimate feel of the smaller rooms.

    If anything, I think people enjoy the sessions more than the tutorials, regardless of room size. With tutorials, you have to register specifically for that, so you feel stuck, or feel that you've wasted half a day if the tutorial turns out to be not so good.

    With sessions, the speakers are forced to get to the point quickly, so your time is better spent, plus there is a lot more to choose from, and you're free to come and go. It seems to work much better.

    • Things look much better when the rooms are full than empty, but I frequently found that if I wasn't in a room five minutes before the talk started then it was impossible to get a seat. Sometimes I'd end up bouncing from my first choice, to my second choice, and finally end up standing in the back of my third choice. In general, the only sessions where I could get a seat were the giant Perl talks, like the Perl 6 Preview or 9 Views of Dominus.
