What worked well for 2011 design & theme were perfect nomination process broad representation of staff great keynote presentations hybrid Q&A (gathering questions over weekend + answering live) community introductions & community quilts AirMozilla & heroic work by IT (Zandr & Shyam)volunteer support (KL) and local community kick-off event being able to re-use key set pieces at both events
What we learned for 2012 and beyond need more time to plan/execute follow up emails because of spam folder problems more preparation time with staff participants dedicated WiFi vendor for MozCamps more collaborative approach for the schedulesmoother communication with participants upon arrival X% of nominations for next MozCamp need to be new MozCamp was not as template-able as we had hoped
Interesting themes + learnings:Lack of insight on how decisions made
Communications: Need for greater and frequent communicationsNot wanting to hear info second hand (frequent problem)
Getting involved:We make it hard on contributors to get involved High zest/eagerness to learn more
