There will be more than 30 people coming to our usergroup on Friday. This is great news – but there are still many others who won’t be able to come in person and will be relying on the webcast and live chat to take part.
We always make sure that if you do make comments or questions using the live chat these are relayed to the room and answered. While that’s what will happen this time, we’re taking a few extra steps to make sure it works well and can grow into a conversation that takes place after the event finishes.
We’re doing this by setting up a dedicated site for the usergroup and related events called Talk. By building the usergroup its own site we want to start to encourage anyone who is either going or taking part online to log in to Talk before the usergroup begins. In other words, register for the event. We’ll be sending emails to everyone we know who might be interested – including everyone who is attending – but we always miss people off the list so here are the instructions!
How to register for the usergroup
If you want to take part – ask questions and join the discussion you’ll need register for the meeting by logging in. As a result you’ll:-
- Be able to make your views known at the event and ask questions – by making comments and raising questions that will be relayed in the room (we will prefer comments and questions from those who log in).
- Take part in any discussions that we put up after the event.
- Find out about other events and information that we’ll share with people who log in – including summaries of the day, blog posts, and any other content that we produce or collect relating to the usergroup.
In return we’ll be asking for a few details from you, including:-
- Your name.
- Your email.
- Authorisation to social media that you use.
This information allows you to take a full part in the meeting and helps us to understand more about how people use Talk. To log in go to the top right corner of Talk and click to choose a social media platform you use to log in with.
As ever, we’ll be tweeting out about the event – and if you want to join the conversation please use the hashtag #piug13!
