For Smashing Meets — our community style event — we’re using Vito.
Vito is a platform for running community-first online events, which is exactly what Meets is. Thanks to our accessibility partner Balsamiq, Meets events provide real-time captioning in English as well.
To join in, no installation is needed! Before the event, we’ll send you a magic link, so you can jump right into the event with a click on a link.
In the platform, on your left menu there will be a welcome page, a schedule page, (live) streams with chats and an overview of all people who have registered. Make sure to say hello in the chat to all the friendly people around once you’ve joined! ;-) 👋👋🏼👋🏾
How Does It Work? 5 Simple Steps
The registration and joining are very straightforward. In many ways, it's similar to on-site conferences, but we'd like to encourage you to be online at least 15 mins before we start, so we can connect and mingle first.
- Check your confirmation email.
Once you've registered a ticket, you'll receive a confirmation email. If something goes wrong, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll help you right away.
- Follow the URL in the confirmation email.
Please provide correct email to receive timely notifications. Once the date gets closer, we will email you a link where you can jump right into the event with a click on a link.
- Check your machine setup.
The video stream will be running in the browser, so it might be a good idea to ensure you don't have hundreds of tabs or apps in the memory already.
- Secure a good Internet connection.
We want you to have a great learning and networking experience, so please ensure that you have a decent connection during the conference.
- Meet friends early on in Slack!.
It's wonderful to share experiences with friends, so connect early in the SmashingConf Slack. Say hello, where you are from and tell us a (brief) story of your life! We'd love to meet you!
We sincerely hope that you'll have a wonderful learning experience. Please let us know if we could improve something by sending an email at email@example.com.
Meow and thank you! ❤️
