An overview about what you need to know about speaking at Meeting C++ online.
- Remo is used as the online conferencing platform
- StreamYard is used to stream your talk into the group in Remo
- Prerecording your talk for the presentation is an option too
Both Remo and StreamYard are browser based, all you'll need is a good Microphone and a Webcam. StreamYard enables you to share the presentation window via screen share and this is then integrated into the livestream.
- You should join us in remo before your talk
- Then a switch happens to StreamYard to give your talk
- For the Q&A we'll switch back into Remo
When giving your talk live via StreamYard, its better when you are not in Remo with the same device/browser/machine. As you'll be using StreamYard as the interface to stream your talk, and both would like to have access to your mic/webcam.
Prerecording is also an option, then you'll be watching your own talk live in Remo, and we'll do the Q&A after the talk. Either you'll record the talk on your technology, or StreamYard can also be used for this.
- Is either livestreamed or prerecorded for the event
- Usually an edited* version of your talk will also be later on YouTube
- The Q&A usually happens after the talk
* The setup and any technical issues will be removed, sound adjusted.
- Read up on ideas of presenting code
- Code is a lot harder to read in the live setup, make the code as big as you can!
- In remo the live view of your talk will not use the full screen, make sure text and code is readable.
- Please upload your slides to Meeting C++ after your talk
