- You are welcome to ask questions about talks & interact with the speakers - you can drop your Q&A in the Main Track & Sponsor Track Channels
- You can interact with other community members based on topic - by conference there is a channel for each conference, you can introduce yourselves at the watercooler, and you are more than encouraged to visit the sponsor channels and watch their demos - not only are they offering awesome giveaways and prizes - they have some pretty awesome employment opportunities.
- During breaks we will have two excellent breakout sessions inside Discord - you are invited to join those, and please be sure to start dropping "rant topics" for Corey Quinn - early - so we can get as much funny time as possible. Based on some arbitrary criteria that we will figure out on the fly, we'll award a fun Hanukkah prize - so get suggesting!
