Attendee’s satisfaction

The following radar chart is about the event date, location, quality of the sessions, quality of the speakers, food, hospitality, event design and kits:

soddisfazione

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:

  • will you attend again?
    • Sure, 26%
    • Most likely, 52%
    • Likely, 20%
  • will you suggest the event to other people?
    • Sure, 59%
    • Most likely, 32%
    • Likely, 9%

Additionally, we’ve got 87% of new entries, awesome!

Some considerations

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?

I’ve spent last two nights in browsing and reading hundreds of those sheets (almost 500, thanks again). Each of them has the following questions:

  • Did the session meet your expectations?
  • Was the topic interesting?
  • Was the speech valuable?
  • What about the quality of the presentation?
  • How’s the speaker? Funny, expert, teacher, motivator, storyteller?

As we can see in the picture below, left side, the overall satisfaction is very high once again (expectations, interesting, valuable and presentation). On the right side, we notice that our speakers are considered experts and somehow funny and storyteller:

Conclusions

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).

Last but not least, thanks to GetLatestVersion.it, DotDotNet.org and also WindowServer.it which allowed us to get DevOpsHeroes in the best shape possible.

See you next year!
