Social Hour event

What is the social hour event?

It is a friendly and informal meet up with Gnome contributors where in each meeting we have a guest invited from other Free Software communities where we share our experiences, and start new collaborations and friends. During the call our guest can give a presentation for 20-30 min on the topic that they would like, and after this presentation, other participants can ask questions about or discuss the subject.

When and where does this event happen?

This event happens every first Friday of the month at 16:00 UTC It lasts for 1 hour in total. This is the platform we will use for the call

Will the social hour be recorded?

Please keep in mind that the social hour event will be recorded so in this way others who could not make it to the call can listen to the presentation later.
