Summary

How do convert an in-person event into a 100% remote one (with hardly any time to prepare)?

Show Notes

We've talked about organising conferences before (in episode #46). And we've talked about pivoting before as well (way back in episode #31). This week we're covering the mother of all pivots; converting a fully-booked in-person conference into a 100% remote event.

So what needs to change when an event moves online? And what do the speakers have to do to adapt? And, perhaps most importantly, how can an event recreate all the "extra curricular" experiences that make attending a conference so valuable? Find out all this and more in this week's indoor instalment of A Question of Code.

What is A Question of Code?

A newbie coder and a seasoned veteran discuss the questions that always come up when someone begins learning to code.

Ed is looking at getting a career in programming and has been learning to code for just over a year. During this time he’s been building up a stack of questions that keep coming up from other newbie coders. Luckily, he’s got someone he can ask for help: Tom. Tom’s a seasoned coder, having worked in the industry for a few years now and has all the answers Ed needs, or does he?
