Thanks for everyone’s feedback on TADSummit. To address the area for improvement in enabling more discussion and Q&A on the presentations given during TADSummit. The plan is to run a weekly “TADSummit Revisited” Hangout OnAir session every Wednesday. The exact time will depend on the locations of the people joining the Hangout. We’ll gather off-line questions, take questions online during the event, and have a few people with lots of questions join-in the hangout. It will likely run for 15 to 20 mins. We will have a few longer sessions, for example on the Dangerous Demo. But generally its a short discussion on a specific presentation given at TADSummit in November. We’ll have a weblog entry on each Q&A session on this weblog. And you can see the videos on the TADSummit YouTube channel.
Given everyone’s travel schedule and the holiday season, the plan is to start on Wednesday 6th Jan, and run every week from then on depending on people’s availability for a couple of months.
For TADSummit 2016 we plan to run a speakers’ corner after each session where you can meet with the speakers for more in depth discussions. As well as enforce a 5 min discussion slot between each presentation. We were simply over-stuffed this year as so many people wanted to present.
Email your questions for the TADSummit presentations you want to discussion and we’ll make sure they get answered and if you like include you on the hangout.
