One piece of feedback I’d like to share is that there should be a dedicated Q&A section after every talk. Having it async in the chat box isn’t ideal.

@vjFaLk The idea sounds good. From next meetups onwards we can create a separate discussion thread here on forum for each of the talk, but will people be able to participate on two separate screens (one on BigBlueButton and second on forum discussion) ? Right now it’s easy for participants to chat on a single screen.

I think didn’t explain very well. I’m suggesting a 5-10 mins Q&A section after every talk where people can unmute and ask questions. But I like what you thought of as well but as a post meet-up forum discussion which would also have links to resources.

@vjFaLk We ask our speakers to keep 5-10 mins for the QnAs, but I feel 30 mins is not enough for them for the presentation and QnAs. I think we should invite only two speakers from next meetup? That will give us time for QnAs. What do you say?

Btw those who missed this Meetup here is the recording -

You guys could try that. Also less people for you to get for the talk and also manage.

Yes. @Anand what do you think?
