TechDays in Ottawa – the sun has set

Ottawa Lunchroom

This was the first time we had a shorter version of the TechDays experience and it had it's trial in Ottawa earlier today. For all intents and purposes - it was a great success from the in person feed back I got from hosting the breakfast and lunchtime activities and talking with people in the hallways between sessions.

How did we handle it?  Well - we has as many registrations as Montreal - which was a two day event. It posed some challenges, but we worked around them.

We shortened the sessions to 75 minutes and changed from a "4 a day" schedule over two days to a single "6 a day" format. It worked, no one seemed to mind, but there was a lot of content to absorb. Are we going to continue with a one day format going forward if TechDays happens again next year?  I don't know at this point, all the data isn't in as of yet - got a comment about it? Leave us a note here in the comments section or drop us a line with the email link at the top of the page.

If you are looking for some more pictures from TechDays as we go through the remaining cities- you can follow our progress on our Flickr group.

We're about to start the packing up process and calling this edition a wrap. I should go lend the track leads a hand with striking the rooms.  Catch ya later!

    I found the two was a nicer spread… Can’t say anything about the one but 48 hours of intensive training….

    I was at TechDays in Ottawa and while I took away a lot of excellent information, it would have been better as a 2 day event.  Personally, I had to drive for 5 hours to get there from North Bay along with a co-worker and it was a bit much having all this in one day.

    But it was an excellent opportunity and look forward to another TechDays!
