WordPress and Beer – Feedback

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Just received the audience feedback from my 2014 HighEdWeb presentation and wanted to share. Thanks again to everyone who attended!

Evaluation Summary

I didn’t really have an estimate on how many people attended my initial session, but looking at the numbers it was a packed house. A total of 69 people filled out an evaluation.

The scale for this year’s evaluation was a bit different ( 5 instead of 7 point scale), so I needed to do a bit of conversion to compare to the 2008 and 2011 sessions. Looking at the totals, is seems that people were impressed, but it wasn’t relevant to everyone’s jobs.

Track (out of 5) Track (out of 7) Track (%)
Informed 4.93 +/- 0.26 6.90 99%
Pace 4.68 +/- 0.50 6.55 94%
Visuals 4.61 +/- 0.54 6.46 92%
Expectations 4.35 +/- 0.78 6.09 87%
Relevant 4.28 +/- 0.79 6.00 86%
Recommend 4.74 +/- 0.44 6.63 95%


These are all unedited:

  • You rock!
  • Excellent presentation!
  • Really good – wish it could have been double the length
  • I wanted to sit down and do my own app after this workshop!
  • A lot of the coding was over my head, but Gabriel did a good job making the information accessible to folks. I appreciate that he has things online for future use.
  • Like the beer analogy
  • Awesome *and* fun!
  • Thanks for all of the ideas to start things on my end …
  • Very knowledgeable and easy to understand.
  • Great crash course on how to leverage WordPress for a variety of purposes. I hope you converted a lot of attendees to WP users!
  • Fantastic, coming away with alot of new ideas.
  • Gabriel is one of the smartest and most practical speakers. Even administrators can enjoy his sessions.
    excellent, learned more than I expected too

  • Nice app and well-presented. Thanks. Yay beer!
  • Very engaging and interesting topic. Came away with some great ideas.
  • Fun way to present the information.
  • Great relationship between brewing and development in this one. Was very disappointed that event staff were so loud in the back of the room.
  • I’m a marketer, so the coding was hard to follow along with, but I love the fun interaction with the beer app. So cool!
  • Interesting, useful, and nice integration with beer.
  • Great presentation!
  • This was my out-of-track session.. .and it was way over my head. But I suspect that for actual techies, it was really great.

  • I liked the analogy of beer with word press.
  • Speaks very quickly. Maybe a little slower next time.
  • engaging presenter and thanks for the donuts
