The GlassFish Unconference was success I believe. Several people commented positively on the format and the interaction it enabled (, ). We had about 100 participants (more than people registering on the wiki). Thanks all for showing up and being an interactive crowd!
Clearly we also learned a few things including that with this number of people (particularly in the first round), the crowd/noise combinaison made it very hard to follow the discussion for many.
A total of 10 topics in 4×45-minute sessions with 3 parallel tracks for a total of more than 3 hours is a bit long (but then it was good exercice for JavaOne and the party was a very nice conclusion to that day).
Also, I think we (I, really) could have done a better job at introducing each topics and some key participants (but then it’s kinda nice to be able to provide feedback with no reserve whatsoever ;).
Anything else we should improve?
