As a curator of #JSConf and advisor to many other technical conference events, one thing I have seen grow tremendously is the volume of feedback from attendees and non-attendees about various events. Unfortunately, more often then not these feedback points arrive with a rather negative tone, which got me thinking about the difference between the execution and the evaluation of technical conference events. There appears to be quite a disparity between those creating/curating the events and those wanting to and or actually attending the events.

As an event organizer / "community person", I quickly started to realize there is not a great center point for statistics about technical events. To further exacerbate this issue, there seems to be a drastic breakdown in communication between the organizers who are risking a lot to curate these events and those that might attend the event. So I decided to help try to reset the expectations and executions both for my personal event as well as any others that might be interested. I am going to gather answers to the following questionnaire until 23 October 2012.

After that I am going to slice and dice the data (happy to have any help) and provide this information back out to the community at large. Ideally this stretches well beyond the grounds of any single or handful of technical communities, so it should be applicable and useful for many. The goal is to see if we can get at least a better picture of how to make and attend better events all around. 

Another key takeaway from my reflections on this issue is that conference organizers, myself included, need to be more transparent about the issues, complexity, and care that go into each event. These events are by no means easy or risk-free and for the most part that effort and risk is carried entirely by an individual or a small group of individuals or a company. So if you are an organizer, I personally encourage you to write about the issues and learnings you have encountered with creating, establishing, and (if appropriate) ending technical conference events.

Please help spread this so we can have a very large and, hopefully, statistically releveant set of data. This helps you, helps organizers, helps others so there really isn't any good reason not to help out!
