I’ve tried something new: some geniuses from the coala community (Justus and Max) came up with the idea of having some remote workshops. Here a few thoughts on that and why you might want to consider making such things for your community as well!
Here is a recording of the second workshop that happened:
So what went well and what didn’t?
- We did have some technical difficulties!
- OBS was awesome as a screenrecorder.
- Browser based VoiP apps seem to only allow screen sharing per window which is confusing when using multiple desktops for seamless presentations.
- Some participants had bad microphones or difficulties joining.
- The recording seems pretty sane! I interrupted it during exercises and uploaded each part as a single video. It seems to make sense to me, people can actually do the exercises in the recorded workshop.
- It’s our remote conference. We don’t have a GUADEC but we can still exchange knowledge and do awesome stuff within our community!
- As an instructor it’s harder to go through the workshop with the right pace as you can’t see the peoples faces. I seem to rely a lot on that.
Interested to see how our workshops work out as a participant? Join our git workshop on Thursday through https://github.com/coala-analyzer/coala/wiki/Git-workshop.
