  • I'd like for the workshops to have more than just talks. For example: have hands-on bring-your-own-laptop tutorial sessions that might last three or four hours. It would be a little tricky, because each person would have to download new modules or projects, but it could be done... I think :)

    There seems to be some value in having workshop attendees leave the workshop with a system that actually can do what they just saw at the workshop. I guess I see the expected content of conferences, workshops and hackathons to be:

    • conferences = talks
    • workshops = hands-on tutorials
    • hackathons = hard-core programming

    A few hours spent getting a Catalyst or Jifty app up and running with the help of a project contributor could be very valuable. Even mucking through something like an ORM system or XML parser with the help of someone knowledgeable would be well worth attending a workshop.
