Hi All

As part of the work we've been doing on the Ops Meetups Team working group,
we've recently had some discussion on the ideal attendee numbers for future
Ops Mid Cycles which we'd like as much feedback as possible on from the
wider community.

The general consensus in the discussions we've had, and from the Austin
summit sessions and the Manchester feedback session, is that between
150-200 attendees should be the maximum size.

The thinking behind this has been ( in no particular order ) :

1. The aim of the events is to encourage active participation, and there is
an optimal session size for this ( ~ 50 - 100 people )
2. Keep the events mainly focused on operators and developers attending
3. Bigger events are more difficult to organise and deliver - challenges of
wifi, finding appropriate venues, more logistical staff needed, larger sums
of sponsorship to be raised etc.

The Ops Meetups Team would welcome input from as many of you all as
possible on this topic, so what are your thoughts ?
