People who were remotely interesting:

Bringing tech events into the virtual web-o-sphere can be a daunting task. In this episode, we talk about what it's been like as an attendee, contributor, and organizer of there virtual events. We cover the great things, the maybe-not-so-great things, and even come up with an idea for a WHOLE other event, because, why not. Come join us on this virtual, distant journey.

Few of our favorite things! & hard transitions
  • The challenge of making awesome IRL events move to virtual.
  • The lack of the hallway track
  • 🍩 wall, and 🍩 puns
Ways to make it interactive
  • No more personal interactions?
  • Finding ways to make it interactive
  • Twitch & YouTube
  • Virtual networking
What may not work so well
  • the length of the talks
  • pre-recorded talks vs. live talks
  • absorbing a lot of information & limited attention spans
New ways to learn
  • smaller chunks over longer periods of time
  • short intense learning followed by soaking
TidBits & ThoughtThings
  • our favorite virtual event memories or ones we want to make
  • (we also gush about Jamstack Conf bc we're very, very excited!!)
