This Flock was great — thanks to the organizers for making
go so smoothly. I got a lot of feedback that not only were the talks
great, but the workshops/hackfests really gelled this year.
I think (and also heard from others) that having the conference in
hotel was a big part of this. I love our university connections, but
think we should look for arrangements like this one for future Flocks
I completely agree!
It was very convenient, especially for those who fought jet lag. I
arrived at 3.30am and had a talk in the morning, but then I was just a
couple of minutes from having a nap to be ready for the rest of the
day. I also used the fitness center and swimming pool in the morning
and during breaks, so after the conference I didn't feel completely
physically damaged like I usually do after sitting on uncomfortable
conference chairs and by a computer for a couple days.
As much as I like university environment, it was a really nice change.
