Agreed. However, how you figure out what session to put in what room?
Last year, the format was that of an unconference. How you choose what
room to put your session in? It is hard to estimate the number of
interested people for any session in such a setup. I, for one, was
(pleasantly) surprised by the interest in the SQL one I put on the board
last year. It was not one of those overcrowded ones (everyone had a
chair!), but still more crowded than I expected.
Anyway, I guess bigger rooms on average for the same number of people
would take away much of the pressure already.
