The goal of every event planner is to impress their guests and (in our case) teach the basics of Web development. We always want to create a unique experience that guests will remember. After first (huge) Webmaker workshop, in our space in Novo mesto, we are now organizing smaller events around Slovenia. Because we are constantly changing the location, we often face unexpected problems with timing, service or WiFi problems.
Last two events were organized in Ljubljana (Si.mobil and Kiberpipa). To get some basic feedback from our guests we decided to send them a link to online survey. Survey is short and gathers all the aspects that we are interested in. With some basic statistic we can get useful calculations that can be used for improvement.
Survey has 9 questions and it only takes a few minutes to fulfill. Currently 75% of all guests expressed their feedback in our survey. That’s a good percentage that covers majority opinion. Our goal is to make Webmaker events unique, different and relaxed. So far 89.5% of guests answered that Webmaker workshop organized by Mozilla Slovenia is unique event. That means that they like the concept of the event.
As I said earlier we are constantly changing location for our workshop but we still get high score from guests for organizational part. With survey we are gathering aspects like:
- General rating of the event
- Recommendation to friends based on their participation
- Open type questions (what did you like, what didn’t you like, what would you change)
- Organizational rating
- Mentor score based on help/knowledge
Even though we received a high score for our events we still know that we can improve. Most of the participants would like to have similar events with advanced program so they can improve their knowledge about Web technologies that they learned on our workshops.
They are also happy with our mentors and general good vibe that is surrounding Webmaker events.
This simple analytics is not only helpful but can also give direct feedback that can be easily implemented in future workshops.
Stay tuned for next Webmaker events in Slovenia!
Till next time …
Cheers, Nino Vranešič
