last week I attended a developer session at Pega World. Although the presentation was good, I left this session very disappointed. In short my session AI & CRM tried to provide a comprehend overview of . Within 4 hours the (mostly unexperienced) audience should be able to build a little application.
What I expected was to attend to a real hands-on workshop, where a pre-build draft application that will be further developed within the course. I also expect to learn hints about best practices, solution decision, digging-deep on how the functionalities really work, known issues and constraints and the possibility to discuss with other participants,
I heard that Pega has an internal conference for LSA. I would highly recommend to open this panel for all interested and experienced developers who would love to exchange and learn on real tasks. I would also recommend to split such workshops from PegaWorld and offer them regionally and for special topics.
What do you think? I'm curious to hear your opinions!
PS: Please move my discussion to a different thread if this is not suitable here.

Thank you very much for your feedback and suggestions.
I'm very sorry to hear your PegaWorld 2018 Developer Day experience did not fully match your expectation. For next year we will put more effort in managing the expectations and for sure take your content suggestions into consideration.
Also we like your suggestion "to split such workshops from PegaWorld and offer them regionally". If you don't mind we might reach out to learn what works best for your region.
Agreed. I did not attend PW18 but had attended two previous years. Have found these sessions to be rudimentary and basic. Looking for more challenging and deeper engagement in the technical side of the conference. My perspective is that PW has always been about commercial interests first, technical development ... somewhere lower down the priority list. Hoping they can evolve this in the future.
