What technology will I need to participate?

Links to the conference website will be sent to all registered attendees in September.

  • Attendees
    • Any device that can connect to the internet – computer, laptop, mobile tablet or phone
    • A solid internet connection. Streaming video takes a lot of bandwidth.  If you have access to an ethernet connection, that will be better than wi-fi.
    • The conference is designed to be interactive and promote discussion. To participate, you’ll need a microphone/headset at the least, but a camera will help us all get to know one another better.
  • Presenters/Speakers
    • Presenting live
      • You must be on a laptop or desktop computer (not a tablet or phone device)
      • Please use a WIRED headset with a microphone (not built in audio, not wireless/Bluetooth headsets)
    • Pre-recorded talks
      • We still hope you can join the conference and be available to answer questions at the end of your recorded talk.
      • You can join from any device (computer or mobile device)
      • Use a headset with microphone for the best audio quality. Built-in phone/computer audio is not sufficient quality for this.
