Hello @Andrew and thanks a lot for proposing this session!

We would love to schedule it on the main hackathon track on Saturday, 22nd of May at 15:00 in UTC. You would have 25min, questions and discussions included.

Does this timeslot work for you? We kindly ask you to confirm before May 17th, so we can complete the schedule.

As a speaker on the main track, we will send you a link to a BigBlueButton room where you will be able to present and share your screen. The content of your session will be live-streamed on a video platform and automatically recorded. Participants will not be able to talk to you directly, but they will leave comments in the chat. We will send you more details closer to the event. If you’d like to schedule a testing session to have a look at BigBlueButton, just let us know.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. Thanks!

Thanks @Nes. That timing definitely works for me; let's get a confirmation from @Bstorm as well before we call it official.

Awesome! Thanks a lot for fast responses. :)

Hi @Bstorm and @Andrew , we need to make some test with the sessions on main track before the event. Can you please send me your e-mail contact so that I can send you some invitations for this test? If you don't prefer to share it publicly, you can send it to tur.neslihan[at]
