Re: Minor remarks about DebianDay at LinuxTag 2005


As you remeber we gave the audience this year the possibilitie to give
us indirect feedback by feedback forms.  Here follows a detailed list of
the results.  Necessary comments by me are marked with "COMMENT:",
personal comments will follow in a sperate mail, further interpretition
of this feedback is left to the reader.

With the first three questions the auditor could rate the relevance of
the topic, the competence of the speaker and means of presentation
[FIXME:  Add URL to the form for those who didn't saw them].  The
results of those are printed as three numbers ranging from 1 to 5 (where
1 is the best note and 5 the worst), telling the best note, the worst
note and the average.

In the last two questions the auditor had free text fields to point us
to conflicts with other talks and to give us general comments.

As far as possible I already talked to the speakers while their memory
was still fresh.  Speakers please note that these numbers are slightly
different from those I told you, because we got additional feedback
after I talked to you.  Sorry.

Those who I didn't met (and who might not read this list), whill be
mailed seperatly soon.

There is one Feedback form left which couldn't be matched to any talk,
because the atendee forgot to cross which talk he is giving feedback
for.  However, this form was between some other fedback forms about
Joeys Debian-Security Talk, but the forms got mixed up very much...
Joey, you decide if this form is for you, since I missed your talk, I
can't say anything about it ;)

Comments:  Zu viele Dinge, zu "ungeordnet" -> hat ueber "alles und
  nichts" erzaehlt, wie Buzzwords
  => verwirrend fuer die meisten Leute, lieber etwas staerker fokusieren
COMMENT:  Could be translated as:  "To many things, to 'unsorted' ->
  talked about 'everything and nothing', like buzzwords
  => confusing for the most people, please fokus more"

Please note, that the Debian-Day is not a competition of speakers.
It's impossible to rank speakers which talked about different topics -
all you can do based on this feedback is think about it, and try to be
better next time, if yoy think, the "bad" feedback was right.

Yours sincerely,
