I don't quite recall that being an issue, but I could have just tuned it
out.  I'm a parent, that's what we do. :-) *rimshot!*

But seriously,how much of that was a function of the doors being open during
sessions? I DO recall most of the session rooms being open as sessions were
going on. Most other cons/camps I've been to have had their session room
doors closed. Would closing the doors fix it?  From the standpoint of how
university classrooms are designed, I'd think so.  Also, we may be in
another building next year at TAMU.  But the fact that they WANT PyTexas
there is huge.

But that gets back to the whole issue of "conference UX" and "force
multipliers".  The less time we have to spend making sure basic
infrastructure is working, the more time can be spent on UX issues like
making sure room doors are closed while sessions are in progress. That would
impact UX for people AT the con, as well as the sound quality of anything
recorded DURING the con.  How many times have you watched a video or heard
audio recorded at a con and the sound was almost unusable?  Being able to
spend time on UX tweaks like that make the conference so much better for
attendees and people who couldn't attend.
