Virtual - via Jitsi
The video conference from last month seemed to go well, so we will try again this month.
We will go with jitsi again, and the talk will be about spinning up a jitsi server using a disposable cloud service for the server, hopefully with a demo one being spun up so we can potentially change over to the second one as a functional test. The URL and code words will be emailed around 18:30 so there is a potential for some social time prior to getting started.
Your output video and audio will be disabled when you join. In order to make sure the experience is a reasonable one for all involved, the presenter will share their screen/window/whatever they are comfortable with and you will see it quite clearly if the test we did are any indicator. Since we do not know how many will be viewing, it will be a little hard to manage questions, so if you have them, feel free to ask them in the chat window. Since the person doing the presentation will not be reading the chat window, the moderator will read the questions out.
This should keep it manageable. After the representation is finished, I’ll stop muting all but the presenter. We can even try enabling video to see how good/bad it is. There will only be the one talk this month, as we don’t know how well it will go.
Virtual chat via IRC or maybe even jitsi. Feel free to indulge in whatever you have at hand :)
