To be honest, for the most part, I’ve stopped going to conferences that do not pay their speakers. Sorry, if you don’t feel your content is worth paying for,
neither do I. (Last bit does not apply to Adrian Segar conferences. I would not hesitate to pay to go to anything that Adrian has designed and facilitates)

The majority of conference attendees voted to have a hybrid traditional/peer conference again next year. I think our peer sessions might have been rated higher overall than our pre-planned sessions! It was a great experience and I look forward to making improvements for next year.

I had such a great experience stretching my technical legs at [edACCESS] last year – if you’re a sysadmin or other technical staff that feels a bit lost at NEIT…try edAccess. It’ll scratch that itch. Really great stuff. Like K-12 Sysadmin Camp. Also gets an award for most/best/most thoughtfully organized conference I think I’ve ever been to.

I thought the small group settings where we received feedback about our challenges and concerns was really helpful. It gave me a new perspective on my challenges so that I can move through them.

Big influences on me at the time were WordPress’s WordCamps, which are also community/peer driven events, and Adrian Segar, who wrote the book on peer conferences: Conferences That Work.

What a cool workshop it was, with this craftsman from the USA. Much learned about interactive meetings, thanks to @ASegar.

I realized this morning that your event content is the only event related “stuff” I still read. I think that’s because it’s not about events, but about the coming together of people to exchange ideas and learn from one another and that’s valuable information for anyone.

“Conferences That Work,” is the most useful, thought-provoking, thorough thing I’ve read all year. Highly recommended for anyone out there who shares my undoubtedly crazy desire to host events. Thank you, Mr. Segar!
