About the event:

We will be broadcasting live on YouTube (yes we will not be using Zoom). This means you can watch the event live on your smart TV, laptop, phone or really any connected device which can stream YouTube. Some additional benefits include:

- You will be able to pause the live event in case you need a break.
- If you join late, you can rewind instantly to the start.
- You can rewatch for up to 48 hours afterwards.
- And soon after, the talks will be available on demand via our Dublin UX Rewind Channel on YouTube.

You will be able to engage with the community via the live chat on YouTube. Select comments will be included in the broadcast. We will be running a twitter giveaway, with details being revealed prior to the event on how you can take part. Finally after trialing Slido in February, we will once again be using the Slido platform to collect questions during the event.

Dublin UX is an all volunteer community MeetUp, ran by Patrick Mooney, Frank Gaine, Flavien Plouzennec, Róisín Benson and Silvia Vitali.
