[cross-post from the chatbots workshop]

I don't have any meaningful criticisms of the workshop, but I do have a comment about the venue. It seems like the head-count wasn't matched to the number of chairs in the room; so a few people had to wait for quite a while to get seats and table-tops to work on. I get that there can be a certain number of people one assumes will give the workshops a miss, and that having to bring new chairs in isn't the end of the world; but the venue took so long to do it that they were making distracting table set-up noises 40 minutes into the talk. That's distracting for the speaker (who did a great job of concentrating nonetheless) and attendees trying to join in and/or concentrate on the workshop.

I believe it's the first time the conference is at this venue, so it's natural to have some first-time issues; and I want to stress that I don't think the conference or speaker could have done any better here. Purely a venue-related thing.

I enjoyed all the presentation and almost everything was relevant the food was very nice. There isn't a lot of things that I found that needed to be changed. the venue was great the presenters were awesome though in a few presentations you felt like it was too basic to come and hear it on a global platform.

I was also happy that there were women represented.

Absolutely INVALUABLE Arsenal to the budding dev or tech guru and dare I say... Even Marketer. This is definitely the best time I have spent this year. Members were incredibly helpful and welcoming. Left this event feeling empowered, having met some really amazing people. Coming from a general skeptical critic, This is one few can beat.
