there's some gist or something?
continuing the thread from #conf-proposals here as a thread for others to see!
@dpsutton would you be interested in helping to put it together, speak, attend, etc?
i think i'm going to commit to doing this!
I had no idea you could do something like that.
right? super cool.
So re: Deserted Island DevOps, it's so far been my favorite virtual event: https://desertedislanddevops.com/. I would've liked to see a larger balance of content, but the content was also reflective of the state of the industry a bit.
also unattaching you @alexmiller from the thread itself so it doesn't ping you every time..
For me it gave enough of a "feeling" of a normal conference instead of just watching a stream. A small "audience" (just the 8 people who could pop in and be speakers) that you could actually see, and be able to interact with Q&A and with the staff via Twitch chat, which is a moderated space but enables breakout rooms and whatnot.
The production values were so far the highest I've seen in any virtual event as well, which helps.
tl;dr high quality skeuomorphism and it was produced very well.
The limitation of the format only allows for 8 speakers per "day" if you're really wanting to preserve that format but I think that's OK.
i'm quite interested in this2➕
