Several weeks ago I posted a quick survey on my blog that asked how you choose a session to attend when you have so many options at conferences. Thought I’d share the results of the survey today.
I don’t think there’s anything surprising about it. Most people overwhelmingly responded that the number one reason they choose to attend a session is simply because they needed to learn the topic.
