Tentative Schedule

Everything is optional. Requests/recommendations/suggestions are welcome! Comment here or add items to the list of things we might do or talk about at the conference, or do/see/eat/drink around the conference.


Wednesday, June 3rd – Early birds arrive? Rides from airport?


Thursday, June 4th – People from out of town arrive. Rides from airport – two trips scheduled so far: noon & 8pm. Group welcome dinner?


Barring some technological issue, we plan to live stream from all the sessions of the conference, and maybe even from the New South Fest & social portions of the weekend via Periscope.

How to do it
Starting at 9am on Friday morning (or earlier if you wanna catch some test streams), search Twitter for #periscope #zluc. When a stream starts, a Tweet will go out with those hashtags. It’ll say something like. “LIVE on #Periscope: #zluc session 3a”

If you are in a browser (on a desktop or laptop computer), click on the link & a new tab will open with the live stream, comments, and hearts (likes) displayed in real time. If you want to be able to comment during the session and/or send us hearts, you’ll need to get the app (available for iOS or Android). And you’ll need to use the app on a smartphone or a tablet.

If things work ok, we’ll be able to see the comments and respond to the as appropriate during the session. (Some folks might be regular-tweeting the conference, too.) If we can remember to save our streams at the end, we’ll be able to post them (or links to them) on the wiki later, so folks who miss the live stream can watch later.

I know this is maybe a new thing for some folks, so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions 🙂 We want to help you to be able to participate!

G+ Hangout/Skype/Firefox Hello
Info for participating via Google Plus / Skype / Firefox Hello will be added on Friday morning.
