Stay Home, Stay Safe, Have Fun

This online event features a main stage where author and instructor Tim Waggoner will lead the event. You can interact with the onscreen presenters, other attendees, and event staff through the chat area, and take polls as they pop up there as well. After the presentations, you can explore other areas of our virtual event space.
The Expo area features vendors just like at a convention. Here you will find publishers, authors, other workshops, and more.
In the Networking area, you can meet other attendees in speed networking sessions of 30 seconds to 3 minutes in length. If you want to maintain this connection you can exchange contact info that will be stored in your Hopin profile for later reference, just like exchanging business cards at an in-person event. The system introduces you to other attendees at random.
All you need to join us is:

  1. a Hopin account
  2. a ticket to the event
  3. a strong internet connection
