What aspects of the conference do you feel gave value for money?
|33||the talks / speakers|
|11||the conference venue|
|8||the city of London|
|13||the hallway track|
- its always good.

|2||More beginner level talks|
|5||More intermediate level talks|
|6||More advanced level talks|
|17||It's about right|
Are there any topics you would specifically like to see featured?
- I appreciate it is hard to capture and satisfy every one's requirements. I have been using Perl for about 20 years, I have never used a CPAN library as I only use Perl to help run a database system. Appreciating that everyone's perception is different, it would be helpful/useful (particularly for newbies) if the standard of the talks could be coded (level 1 - easy | level 2 - intermediate | level 3 - advanced) on the day's schedule.
- More: Mojo, Dancer, DBIx::Class, deep-dive into Plack middleware I'd also like to see some kind of comparison sessions about different frameworks like Mojo and Dancer.
- Perl 6
- Perl 6, transition from Perl 5
- Perl Best Practices, CPAN module selection and submission, applications in Data Science and data management.
- Perl for business processes (ESB, BMP...)
- Something on organising events: would be good to have a joint presentation, for example from Mark, Barbie and BOOK.
