Hello, and welcome to #CoronaConf! It’s not an actual conference, but one that consists of curated talks from past conferences around the world.
Each weekday I’ll be posting a set of 3-4 different conference videos, spread across different subjects so there’s something for everyone.
A lot of us are either partly or fully isolated in our homes, and that can be tough. A lot of us has also had conferences, meetups and event cancelled due to Corona. So #CoronaConf is all about bringing the conference to us!
Not what you were looking for? Check out the full list of videos from 40+ conferences.
