Things I did not like about Connections

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

Let me first say that this is not a post of me complaining, well it is but in the nicest way possible. The con was fun, it was relevant, and the sessions that I attended were good. That being said let me talk about some things that I would like to see changed.

  1. Lunch, Overall the food was good and the food is not really my complaint, I am talking about the ice tea that was sitting at the tables. I HATE Ice Tea and I doubt that I am the only one. I understand that having soda or something like that may be too expensive but why not just give us water and the option for Tea. It was a hassle to get water. (small complaint but big too me.)
  2. Schedule, again I think that the content overall l was great and I enjoyed the sessions. The one thing that really stood out to me like a sore thumb was the number of actual sessions on Wednesday. Three sessions, that seemed a bit lite to me but that is just me. And Thursday was much better with a full day of sessions. Thursday was also bad because every hour I had two or three sessions that I wanted to attend. I am OK with having to choose, I appreciate that in fact, but it seems to me that if one or two of those sessions could have been on Wednesday that I would have been able to attend more of the sessions that I was interested in.

That is really it. I think that is not too bad considering the scale of the con. I think the event organizers did a good job putting on a great event. I would recommend the con to anyone that was interested and I would have just one little bit of advice for you…. Be sure to get some sleep!!
