Re: [CODE4LIB] Code4Lib Northwest meeting report

Event was not recorded, but I'm sure a shoutout for slides will generate
some nice stuff to link to. Note to self: in future, it might not be a bad
idea to copy slides to a flash drive after each presentation

 Wow, this looks like it was a great event. I don't suppose any of the
 talks were recorded, or that any slides are available? I'm
 particularly interested in Karen Estlund's talk about NoCode: Digital
 Preservation of Electronic Records...and well, all of the talks :-)

 minute
  sessions and 13 lightning talks listed at
  http://groups.google.com/group/pnwcode4lib/web/code4lib-northwest-2010made

  stayed focused to the end.
 
  About half of the attendees filled out evaluation forms. Roughly 70%
 rated
  it as excellent, and everyone else gave it the next highest rating. A
 number
  of themes appeared in the responses. People loved the format consisting
 of
  short presentations and lightning talks. They also gave the content,
 food,
  and venue high marks.
 
  However, both at the post conference evaluation and in written comments,
  people said they'd like more opportunity to interact directly with
 others.
  Breakout sessions, short Q/A sessions after every couple speakers, and
 other
  ideas were suggested. These ideas and others will be considered for
  improving next year's event.
 
  Significantly, a number of excellent technologists with a feel for the
  code4lib spirit indicated willingness to help organize the next Code4Lib
  Northwest, so we're already looking forward to Code4Lib Northwest 2011.

2010-06-15 Thread Shirley Lincicum
A couple of presenters have already added links to their presentation slides
on the Schedule page at:
http://groups.google.com/group/pnwcode4lib/web/code4lib-northwest-2010

Perhaps we could encourage other presenters to do this as well?
