Attendee Guide

What is the event format and what are the different session types?

The event includes presentations including live Q&A with the speaker, followed by "Continue the Conversation", an unformal AMA session.

InfoQ Live will feature sponsored Roundtables: live panel discussions between software practitioners where attendees can ask their own questions.

Q&A: How can I pose questions to Speakers?

Just type your question in the chat during the presentation or during the couple of minutes preceding the Q&A time and we'll share the questions with the speaker during the Q&A dedicated  time.  

What is "Continue the Conversation"?

This is a dedicated space for attendees and speakers to Continue the Conversation after each session. 

Please note that this session is unstructured and unfacilitated - it’s a space for you to engage naturally with our speakers - just as you might do after seeing a presentation at an in-person conference.

A Zoom meeting room will open when joining. Please join the Zoom room with your camera on and unmute yourself to talk. A member of the InfoQ Team will let you know when the next session is beginning.

Will attendees get access to the presentation videos?

Registered attendees will get access to the talk recordings included in their ticket after the event. Recordings for the Roundtables will be accessible about 48 hours after the event. Recordings will remain available for a duration of 30 days.

What are the Roundtable Sessions?

Roundtable sessions are co-located, sponsored virtual events happening right after the InfoQ Live sessions. They are panel discussions between practitioners, led and designed by a practitioner moderator, with an opportunity for participants to ask questions.  

Roundtables are free and open to all. Registration is required.

What Virtual Event Platform will be used?

InfoQ Live was designed as a website that serves as the main gateway to both the pre-conference as well as the at-conference experience. During the live event, the main entry point will remain to be the InfoQ Live website, from where all presentation and meeting links links will be made available. ClickMeeting and zoom will be used for the event. While no software download is necessary for ClickMeeting, please make sure to download the latest version of Zoom for the Roundtables and "Continue the Conversation" sessions.

How will ticket holders access the event once they have registered?

Attendees will receive a confirmation email and login details upon registrering and an additional email with instructions 3-7 days before the event. Those emails will be sent from webmaster@qconferences.com. We encourage all attendees to make sure they can log in on the InfoQ Live website before the day of the event.

During the event, registered attendees just need to be logged into their event account and click on any session from the schedule page to be directed to their session room.

At the designated time, you will find the session live stream at the top of the page or a Zoom meeting link, depending on the session type.
