To help you get the best possible EclipseCon experience for the second virtual event in a row, we’ve compiled some tips and suggestions to consider as you plan your virtual visit to EclipseCon 2021!
Check Out All The Tracks
For insight and inspiration, consider attending a session outside of your track focus area. Check out the blogs in our EclipseCon series to find more information on the various presentations in each track:
Build Your Calendar
Once you know what sessions you want to attend, block off the session times on your calendar. This will help ensure people don’t try to book other meetings that will interfere with your must-see EclipseCon sessions.
Take Advantage of the Live Experience
Similar to last year, the EclipseCon sessions are being recorded so you are able to rewatch them later, but by participating in the live sessions you can join real-time chats, Q&A and discussions.
Being fully engaged with conference speakers, content, and other participants is important for the health and wellbeing of our community. We will have wellness sessions again this year in between the talks to give you a chance to unwind, reset, and learn healthy habits to take with you beyond the conference.
Also, take advantage of the connections at the conference by connecting with participants right after a session to keep the conversation going. This helps mimic the conversations you would have after in-person sessions.
Make Connections Ahead of Time
Follow @EclipseCon on Twitter to stay up to date about event updates leading up to and during the conference. You can also use #EclipseCon on social media to connect with other attendees and speakers before the conference. This way you can be sure you will be prepared to engage during the conference.
Share your Knowledge
Anyone who is familiar with EclipseCon knows there is an astounding culture of learning, knowledge transfer, and connections with other community members. Just because this is an online event, that spirit and enthusiasm will not change, EclipseCon will continue to be an informative and engaging experience for all!
Please feel free to share any tips or ideas you have learnt from being virtual and making the best of virtual events through the use of your usual Eclipse communications channels to share them with your fellow community members. We are driven to make this another great virtual EclipseCon experience for everyone!
