Virtual - via Jitsi
This month we have a talk/discussion led by Ed Hong on the issues and workflow involved in working from home, particularly under conditions of the pandemic.
In contrast to most of our meetings, this one is about strategy more than tactics, about social interaction rather than software details.
The meeting URL and code words should be emailed around 18:30 so there is a potential for some social time prior to getting started.
Similar to last time, 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. Rather than unmute, pressing your space bar is supposed to unmute your microphone while pressed, so you can try that to ask questions. There is also the chat window, but when it is active it obscures part of the screen. Feel free to post questions and as opportunity presents itself and the presenter notices, they will get answered. After the presentation is completed, feel free to unmute and have a normal voice/video Q&A.
Virtual chat via IRC or maybe even jitsi. Feel free to indulge in whatever you have at hand :)
