How to participate:

The easiest way to participate is to watch the talks on our YouTube Channel: You can do that even if you’re not logged in, but you’ll only able to interact with other participants via chat if you’re logged in as a YouTube or Google user. That’s how you’ll be able to ask questions to the presenters as well, because BrELT moderators will bring questions from YouTube participants to the speakers.

The speakers will be presenting from a Google Hangout platform, whose link will be made available a few minutes prior to each talk on our community and event page. You can join us on Hangout, too, but bear in mind that Google only allows 10 places there.
