Jeopardy was fun! Next year 1 vs. 100? :)
The food was great and we had enough free drinks, great job!

A little snack on the tables or possibility to order some food/snacks at the hotel in the evening would be great.

Great ending to a great weekend (loved the host & perfect food). One tip for next year: please make the numbers digital (attached to your ticketnumber?) to prevent waiting/giving everyone a raffle ticket.

The Jeopardy was cool, the length of the closing was too long. After Jeopardy it was a long slog until the socials. It didn't help that we were constantly reminded that the socials would be in a bit.

It might be hard to improve this because of all the stuff that has to be done during the Closing & Raffles.

Totally love the raffle, but to speed things up a bit more using a raffler (Ramon de la Fuente seems to be good at writing them) instead of hand-drawn tickets might be a wise decision. Saves a great deal of time getting people to/from the stage.

Jeophpardy was really nice as well.

Also, it's really great that you show the after movie (rough edit) during the closing ceremony. Great way to recap the event.

Wow, if this is tradition, this is a reason to come back!
I love it when not everything goes from a book!

JeoPHPardy was great.

I think the raffle could be improved by using a computer just picking a random name from the list of all tickets sold.

Props to Jeophpardy game host, very amusing.

Didn't expect to win anything, but our team is happy with the orange ElePHPant ;)
Good food and social events.

See you guys next year!

Closing ceremony was bit of a mixed bag.

Overall I enjoyed it, but the fact that the social was mentioned over and over made the whole ceremony feel longer than it actually was. Would also like to suggest using Ramon's raffler for next years raffles instead of paper ones.

Jeopardy was hilarious and should (imo) return at next years closing ceremony.

Post-conf social was nice. Not too long lines for the food, plenty of drinks and a good ambiance.

Jeopardy was the shit.

A game at the end of a conference is an excellent idea, and the additional sponsor-love given by adding them in the game was a very smart move.

I didn't find the whole thing boring at all, compared to other conferences. Handing out tickets just before the raffle clearly solved the problem of people winning who had already gone home (which is absolutely the most boring thing that can happen), so well done. Maybe next year we can point a camera at the audience and have some AI pick winners directly...

Jeopardy was hilarious. Food was good. Company was fantastic. Bumper cars were doubly painful (but awesome).

Jeophpardy has to return next year! That's the second year, and next year it should have a real clear timeslot in the evening.

Next year I'll win an Elephpant for sure!
