If you have attended DebConf you may know that many conversations ends with criticisms and ideas to improve the conference. So I decided to organize some of them from DebConf13 and also write some of my own reflections which can be useful for future DCs. Share yours!
It's not a place to add personal specific issues. It's about generic ideas/feelings that if shared may help to improve our so loved annual meeting.
|Less and larger hacklabs||Larger hacklabs help with having more people working together etc etc||tiago|
|Having more free slots for talks in the last DC days||Many talks/BoFs in DebConf motivate people to register new ones, and I got a lot of requests for the last days. We ended with a full schedule for 3 rooms. It may be interesting to leave some free slots for these days...||tiago, gaudenz|
|A more friendly video gallery||well... usability in video.debconf.org sucks :)||tiago|
|All together in the conference dinner||DebConf should promote an official dinner having all Debian people together. It creates such a special Debian community atmosphere which I consider being the most import goal for this specific event.||tiago, tassia|
|Full meal for everyone in the conference dinner||It's annoying to have people having nice wines/beers while others who can't afford it having just water.||tiago|
|New recommended talks for DebConf||"First time at Debconf" by Enrico in DC13 should be merged to the Welcome talk. Other important talks are: lightning talks, DebconfX+2 bids, DebconfX+1 presentation etc||tiago|
|Own, single and better network||We should have only one Wifi and wired network, with roaming, and controlled fully by DebConf network team, so that we can improve things (and not waiting DHCP for minutes)||cate|
