Please give us your feedback

This will be our 6th WPO meetup. So we thought it is time to ask your feedback about the meetings we organized so far. We would like hear from you what you think about the topics, speakers, accomodation etc. Please fill in our survey (, it will only take a few minutes and it will help us to improve the meetups.

Thank you in advance!
