I sent out a feeler this week about doing as session based on Lightning Talks, but it had two drawbacks. The first was the fact that it would be difficult to transition others into the lead spot to do their talk and share their slides. the second was that, we were not sure that we'd have enough presenters to be able to pair off or fill a two hour session. So we will hold off on this idea until we have had a chance to research some public address/webinar style options.
We've reached out to a "special presenter" who has something interesting to share, and his idea will be the focus of this week's session (have I piqued your interest yet :)? ).
For those who want to join the session, here's the process:
1. Send an email message to WTAmericas@gmail.com. Put "WTA05" somewhere in the subject line.
2. Log into Skype and add "weekendtestersamericas" to your contacts list.
3. Be prepared to join the session about 10 minutes before it starts so we can add you to the group session.
We try to be alert and aware of what is happening in the background for these sessions, but getting there a little early will help ensure that everyone who wants to be part of the session can be. After the session is underway, we will do our best to monitor the background requests, but we cannot promise that we'll be able to add you after the start time. Best advice, come a little early :).
So that's it. We hope to see you all this Saturday!
