We should plan well in advance and get interesting guests lined up. We sent out invitations too late to get many guests.
We should make it shorter. I personally almost fell asleep on stream toward the end of it. This year, we should only stream for 4 hours, starting at 11 p.m. EST and end at end at 3 a.m. EST (midnight on the west coast).
We should have more events lined up and have the campers present revolve. We can have one person host the entire thing and have other campers come and go.
We should stream on YouTube instead of Twitch, since we have a much larger following there now.
Should we have another live stream this year?
Any ideas for whom we should invite on?
Is there anyone here who’s a regular streamer who’d be interested in serving as the MC?
I vote yes for the livestream. If you’re looking for semi-celebs for the guests, might I recommend Mattias Johansson of funfunfunction fame?
At the same time, I’m sure many campers would be happy hearing from a similar crew as last year. Admittedly, I didn’t watch the full summit video above, but it might be cool to have different segments like a Q&A from the audience, a segment where you write a quick app of some kind together, etc.
I’d be up for joining in the virtual party! I’m on EST, so count me in for at least the first couple hours. Ringing in the new year with some fine FCC folks sounds like a great idea! One question: would wearing a pair of (my finest) sweatpants be in line with the dress code?
Great idea, for CET timezone it would be pretty late or either early after New Year’s parties but I’d love to see it on YT later.
We can record ‘happy new year, keep on coding!’ or sth like that from the campers all over the world and put it in the breaks between guests
