Important Note About Video & Other Animations
Video compression is heavily affected by animation. (Animations can also make attendees unwell.) We strongly advise against including video, animated gifs, and animated slide transitions in your presentations.
In Case of Emergency During a Live Session
Each session should have a session monitor volunteer to ensure speakers have arrived and get started on time, liaise with DrupalCon staff in case of technical difficulties or other issues, cheerlead speakers, and monitor session chat. They will be provided with the following instructions, however, speakers should be prepared just in case.
Use the #BADCAMP-speaker-emergency channel on the public Drupal Slack to communicate with DrupalCon staff about. Examples of emergencies: tech issues, unwelcome behavior such as spamming or trolling, potential Code of Conduct violations, etc.
BADCamp staff will monitor the #BADCAMP-speaker-emergency during the conference hours and will get back to you shortly.
IMPORTANT: When communicating about a potential Code of Conduct violation: Please communicate urgently, yet maintain privacy. Post something like “I’m a [role] and urgently need to DM with BADCamp orgainzers about a current issue.” An organizer will privately message you for more information, join the session immediately to monitor, and may follow up with you and/or others.
Please do not use this channel for anything other than communicating urgent messages during live sessions.
Hopin General Resources
Having two screens is unnecessary but can make for a smoother experience for those speakers who share their screen (slides).
- Use a modern browser for best experience. Hopin recommends Chrome or Chromium.
- Hopin specifically recommends Chrome over Firefox for those who are sharing their screen (slides).
- Close all extraneous browser tabs before you start.
