A full agenda can be found by clicking the following image:
I want to make this event more like an in-person meeting where there is movement from the presentation room into a wider conference venue, and the ability to connect with others.
As such, Raster Revealed 2021 will be run using Discord as the conference venue and Zoom as the conference room. Here is a short video I have made to show you how the two systems will work on the day: youtu.be/09rI_ZJpbrU
You may be familiar with Zoom but not with Discord. Discord is where you can hang out with other delegates and connect via chat. Please check out my short video on how to use Discord: youtube.com/watch?v=4dGacLKmaxI
