Topics for discussion

  • (Please add agendas)
    • Our detailed event scale and program. (from last meeting)

      • Exact event start time and end time.
        • 9AM UTC+9 is too early even for Korean and Japanese people.
        • Time has been adjusted to 1PM ~ 8PM UTC+9
      • How many rooms? (==How many sessions will happen at the same time?)
        • Maximum 4 rooms except virtual booth for sponsors(if we decide to have).
        • This can be shrink down to 2~3 rooms if we got less number of CFPs then we expected.
      • How many session slots? => This will be discussed by content team

      • We have regular session and Lightning talks(recorded or live), Workshop, Panel talks,
      • Do we also have virtual booths(or virtual exhibitions) with video calls? => This will be discussed by content team

  • Code of Conduct
  • T-shirts and other swags
    • On last meeting, we discussed: Marketing design t-shirt and other swags, LoCo teams order and distribute swags with that design.

    • Question: How should we deal with if people from region we don’t have loco want to get t-shirt or swags?
      • We can gather more volunteers from that region on-demand if possible.
      • Or we can just provide design file and link to website that can order custom t-shirt
      • Like this website https://skyline.github.com/ provides custom 3d print model file with link to 3rd party website to that can actually order custom 3d printed swag. We can also consider provide website with t-shirt design file and link to custom t-shirt order website.

      • Another ideas: 3d printed swags? Keycaps? Keychains?
