Lorna Mitchell has posted the last of three articles with tips for those hosting tech events out there from her past experiences with conferences like the Dutch PHP Conference.

This is the final post in a short series about hosting events, based purely on my own experience and no specific expertise, in the hope that they will be useful to others doing similar things. If you are interested, you can read the first two posts, about preparing for the event and what to do on the day. This post is about some of the additional things about an event; sharing the content afterwards, getting feedback from attendees, and the most important bit - the social event.

She talks about the importance of getting slides (and recordings, if possible) from each of the sessions as this can add to the post-event experience, especially for those that weren't able to attend. She notes that feedback during and after the conference is key and has a few tips for the social events that might happen in the evenings for the attendees.
