What did you like the least about event?
  • Our event was a lot of talk and less interactivity. I wish we had planned more interactive parts to engage our attendees and get them involved with the event. A list of ideas for hands-on activities would be helpful.
  • Our event in particular was very long.
  • Was very difficult to me looking for a good speaker.
  • Hard to gather participants if u r not involved in a related club.
What did you like the most about event?
  • We had active Fedora contributors local to our city and participate in the event. The guest speakers were a great addition and added a dynamic of how FOSS / Fedora can go outside of the academic / student world.
  • Having an event to try to get more diversity in open source and reaching out to minorities.
  • Generate an space to talk about technology and the same time generate an small community of girls looking work together.
  • Attendees interested in the free software world.
  • Helpful fedora D&I team.
  • It helps raise awareness and it is the way to express thanks for the women contributors across the Fedora Project.
  • The events celebrates the presence of Women in Fedora and also it helps in increasing Women contributor.
How do you think the event could have been improved?
  • More Interactivity.
  • More breaks in our scheduling and more direction on topics from Fedora would be nice.
  • More local and global Marketing.
  • Greater publicity for the events of Fedora.
  • More follow-up with participants after the event, hackathon with participants to get them started.
  • We should involve some activities and also follow-up sessions.
  • Event can be improved by settings some measurable goals.
Are there any other comments or suggestions you'd like to make?
  • Advance planning is required. It takes about ~60 days of advance planning prior to event to get reservations, invite guest speakers, and coordinate outreach.
  • Many thanks to the D&I team for this initiative.
  • Hold a virtual event.
  • An early planning helps make an event better.
