FoA, as I said, it was hardly surprising, so don't worry about it. Marshalrusty did so much to scout and plan and prepare for the event that I was truly happy when he asked me to do the slot for him. There was no need for him to have had to add presentation prep on top of everything else. The schedule was never updated because at that point there really wasn't a need to do so, as everything was happening in the next few days.Fountain of Apples wrote:I wrote those based on this schedule the week before Londonvasion even started. You weren't on there, Dave, so you didn't get spotlighted. Sorry.
As a bit of a teaser, though, we do have some ideas on how to manage the presentation submissions, selections, and scheduling and so on a little bit differently for the next 'vasion. It is my hope that the talks next year might include more non-team contributions. I know a lot of people want to hear from Acyd Byrn and the rest of the dev team, and that was certainly interesting. But by next year phpBB3 is going to be a very mature presense on the web (which is different from being a mature product). I think there might be some interesting talks that could be given by folks that are using the software, perhaps in ways that were not originally intended.
We might even put out a "Call for Topics" that would let the general user community request or suggest topics that could be covered. Is that something that y'all would be interested in?
Part of what I do in real life involves speaking at conferences. While I've never done the full planning, I've been involved in the speaker selection process often enough that I hope to be able to help more in the planning aspect of things for the next time. As they say, watch this space for details as they become available.
