Hands-on Agile #27: Virtual Open Space Events w/ Veertly

PLEASE READ THE FINEPRINT FIRST: 1. You need to RSVP to receive an invitation. 2. I communicate with people who RSVP’ed via Meetup.com’s internal messaging system. Ignore emails from Meetup at your risk. 3. I kindly ask for your understanding that RSVPs will no longer be available from September 30, 2020, on for organizational reasons without exception. HANDS-ON AGILE 27: How do we run a virtual open space event or BarCamp with a large number of participants? Principally, we could use break-out rooms for organizing the sessions. The question is, though, how do we ensure that the law-of-two-feet still applies? By making everyone a co-host? Probably not the best idea in some situations. After our unsuccessful trial with Unhangout earlier this year, we will try a new platform called Veertly this time.
