DevOpsHeroes has been a great event. We didn’t expect so many people and we could not imagine that the feedback would be so good. Quick facts:
The following radar chart is about the event date, location, quality of the sessions, quality of the speakers, food, hospitality, event design and kits:
As we can see, the overall satisfaction is really high (4/5) and everything on the venue was rated higher!
Indeed, we’ve received a good feedback also for the following questions:
Additionally, we’ve got 87% of new entries, awesome!
We have to work for the next year’s edition, in order to improve our organisation, but in the end we did very good. The number of event feedback is close to the total number of attendees, so they can be considered the source of any suggestion.
Speaking about tech sessions, including the speech made by Martin Woodward, we’ve received a set of important suggestions. We already know, our speakers are skilled and passionated, but how can we understand the people’s opinions without these surveys?

We’re really proud of the second edition of DevOpsHeroes. Engage IT Services and Upgrade did a great job together, and, hopefully, both companies will cooperate in the future in order to provide new formats and events like this one. A special thanks goes to Martin Woodward (Microsoft), which “crossed the seven seas” for being with us, and also to HPE for sponsoring and supporting the organisation. A great kudos goes to Silvio Di Benedetto and Giuliano Latini, who managed and followed the live streaming and the session recordings (coming soon here).

See you next year!
