    It was my first time attending and I found it lasts too long.
    Maybe if they lasted until max 19:30 then it would be ok as far as duration.

    It was my first meetup and I enjoyed the event. I had some good conversations, I liked the open space concept.

    Nice presentation about sizzling teams. The open space was a really good instrument to start discussions!

    Eelco did a nice presentation in "sizzling teams", and you noticed people had picked it up because the word "sizzling" somehow popped up a lot in conversation :-). The OpenSpace was very good: lots of nice discussions, dynamic atmosphere.

    The concept of an open space is great. But: Due to the rule that everything that happens is the only thing that could, we often stray from the original subject. Just wondering if this is wat we want ...

    I've missed most of the evening but still I was on time to participate to the open space moment.
    It was my first open space and I've to say was brilliant, amazing environment, great rules that really made the difference.
    I liked to being able to walk around and just listen few bits from every group until I found my spot, very enlightening experience (I'm already thinking to all the situation where this idea can be applied like in some problem solving meeting, instead of just having one brain storming split the problem or the possible solutions and have multiple discussion on the same time).
    Thanks guys, next time I'll really try to get there earlier! :)

    This was my first meetup and I enjoyed it very much. It was great talking to people "in the field" and learning how they are doing scrum. Looking forward to the next one.

    Het was weer een hele leuke avond. Naar aanleiding van de presentatie van Eelco hebben we daarna nog een fijne discussie gehad over het verschil tussen 'to play to succeed' to 'play for keeps = game' c.q. tussen spel en wedstrijd. En over het volwassenheidsniveau van scrummaster en team. Verder deelgenomen aan twee interessante open space sessie en gedachten uitgewisseld over onderwerp en organisatie van de volgende meetup. Ik heb genoten en zie graag uit naar de volgende keer.

    It was smart to already start getting marketplace topics during dinner. Maybe it's also an idea to get one thematic topic extending the presentation during the first or last session. The first session because it's still fresh in memory or the last because it will keep more focus towards the late hours. It's not to break the idea of marketplace, but a 'discussion panel' is always interesting to take part in.

    Het is misschien handiger om de doelgroep wat beter in acht te nemen. Het is onduidelijk voor wie deze meetings voor zijn bedoed. Ik ben een Scrum asprirant en had toch wat meer uitleg over Scrum verwacht. Tegelijkertijd waren er Scrum Masters in de meerderheid die dieper op Scrum ingingen.

    Een leuk en informeel sfeer. Dat beviel wel prima. Presentatie moet toch even iets prof aangepakt worden niet voor de beamer staan zou ik zeggen :).

    In ieder geval bedankt voor de meeting!

    It had a good atmosphere and a nice, cooperative audience.

    Topic was 'sizzling' and spaces were very interesting. Learned a lot today!

    It must have been great, since I could not make it in the end..

    Too bad, can't make it because we have an Open Space at Sogeti the exact same day.

    Looking forward to this meeting. I've send a message with an idea about a topic.
