We’ll chat & play a few games.

Also this would be a great opportunity to get to know our remote networking platform - spatial.chat, where all remote discussion rooms will happen.

Agenda

🎫 Schedule & registration >> https://reactsummit.com/schedule-offline

Registration starts at 7:00. The program starts at 09:00. We’ll give you the badge at speakers dinner, please, don’t forget it at the hotel :) When you arrive to the venue, go to the registration desk (please, don’t wait in line, come directly to the registration desk) and say that you’re a speaker to our volunteers. They’ll give you your badge (if you missed the speakers dinner) and show you to the speakers lounge and stage.

💻 Tech checks

Please, be sure to come to the venue at least 1 hour before your talk, so that we have an opportunity to test your laptop connection. If your talk is before 1st coffee break, then you’ll need to test it before the opening. Other talks need to be tested during a break that comes before them in the schedule. ! Before your talk come to stage 10-15 minutes in advance in order to get the mic on and plug in your laptop.

🎤 Talk duration, slides, resolution of the screen

Full talk: 20 min

Lightning talk: 7-10 min

Slides: since you’ll be connecting your laptop feel free to use any format convenient for you. We do not have any draft for slides or strict design requirements. In case you’d like to add conference logo to the presentation, here it is >> LOGO

Screen: 16x9. Resolution: HD.

🎤 Your talk + QnA on stage

After the talk there will be a 5-10 min QnA on stage. The questions will come through sli.do from in-person & remote attendees. Lightning talks - there won’t be a QnA after them.

📺 🙋‍♀️ Hybrid Agenda

As you know, this event is hybrid, and we’ll have people from all over the world watching the live stream. There’s a tricky part you should know about :)

In order to have as many time zones being able to watch it, we’ll start the live stream at 1:30pm CEST (right after lunch), so all talks & QnAs between lunch and closing will be live streamed.

The talks between opening and lunch will be recorded together with the QnAs and will be shown (streamed) right after the last in-person talks.

Feel free to say hi to remote audience from stage :)

I hope it makes sense.

⁉️ Speaker QnA Room / Hallway Track

Where: dedicated Speaker QnA booths in the networking area After the QnA on stage our volunteers will take you to a speaker QnA room, where you’ll be able to continue talking to the attendees in-person = hallway track ! For those whose talks are after lunch, the setup will be a little different, because these Speaker QnA rooms will be hybrid, and remote attendees will join them too. It’s very important for us to give a similar experience for both in-person and remote attendees. In the Speaker QnA Room there will be equipment to connect to virtual space where remote attendees will gather, we’ll show it to you in the venue and explain once again, there will be a volunteer to help with that.

You’ll have calendar invites for them.

🤝 Discussion Rooms (hybrid)

Where: balcony above the registration Similar setup to hybrid Speakers QnA Rooms: there will be equipment to connect to virtual space where remote attendees will gather. And for sure the in-person attendees also can join.

Agenda:

14:20 - Career Advancement

14:50 - Public Speaking / How to Create a Good Talk Proposal

15:50 - Future of Frontend Frameworks

🍽 Food

There will be light breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, food trucks at the venue. Lunch will be served at the speakers lounge room, but feel free to have it together with the attendees in the main catering room/food truck area, we just don’t want you to wait in lines :) There will be meat, vegan, lactose free, gluten free options.

After the last talk & before the party there’s a break, feel free to grab dinner at one of the food trucks - you’ll have a special token for a meal there.

🎂 React Birthday celebration ceremony

If you arrive early to the venue, we kindly ask you to be near stage after the first talk (by Michel Weststrate). MCs prepared special React Birthday celebration thingy and it would be great if you could participate in it :) All you need to do is come to stage by the end of Michel’s talk 💚

❤️ Closing ceremony

Please, come to stage 5 minutes before it starts (at around 17:15) and come up stage when MCs announce “speakers on stage”!

🥳 Afterparty

There will be an afterparty in the evening at 19:00! 🥳  Food & drinks: open bar, finger food, food trucks Activities: coding artists (music & visuals), silent disco, karaoke (Base Camp track hall) :)
