Q: Why are you splitting it up, instead of having a hybrid with one large location and online viewing?
A: Registrations are approximately 10x of our expectation. This plan will allow maximum participation and access for attendees everywhere.
Q: I don't know of any other conference run this way. Will it work?
A: We don't know of one either -- it's the first year and an experiment. We look for the community aspect to help us scale and make it work, and improve in the future.
Q: What if I have already booked travel to the Bay Area? Can I still attend there?
A: Yes, contact one of the Bay Area watch party hosts noted above.
Q: I'm presenting a talk. Can I present in person?
A: Yes, you could present from any watch party or any other location. You also might host a watch party or private meeting on your own, and present from there.
Q: How will it work to sign up for a watch party?
A: Choose a location above and contact the host as noted.
Q: Can I travel to attend a watch party somewhere else?
A: Of course! You could choose any location that appeals to you as above, and then contact the host to attend.
Q: Can I get a certificate for my attendance?
A: We provided this template in which we explained the purpose of the conference. Please make a copy and fill in your name if you need a certificate.
