If you have a project that you want feedback on and you want to present, please contact us and we can add you to the list. For presenters, we get the crowd to explore your app or site, and the crowd produces feedback that you can act on. Feedback is the content you want. Get us to explore + discover your app without seeking to persuade by verbal explanations.

Attendees: make content. You create value when you attend. How? As a crowd, we see something being presented for a few minutes. Then we speak in 3 rounds:
## fast impression, comparison, tag, keyword, query, holistic remark
♥♥ liked, strong, clear, copiable aspects, or "I learned something"
Δ▲ diffs, how to improve it, what to change, do differently, and why

1st round creates a new context after the "presented content" context.
2nd round is to highlight what works well. This is crucial.
3rd final round is critical thought about "consider improving ____"
Voilà une approche qui génère un feedback structuré et groupé. In three layers our feedback gets expressed. Your feedback is part of it. We all learn from this open-outcry process, whether we're expert or novice.

We start early. Here's the schedule:
5:41 meet and get settled in
5:51 a presenter gives us content and gets crowdsourced feedback.
.:. several of these contentmaking feedback sessions fit in 95 min.
7:35 we can take off to some other place, or keep going till 8pm.

At 5:45 start time, we have some presenters lined up, not all. (*).
To present your work, tell us asap and show your stuff to an organizer
for a few seconds.

Q&A / FAQ:
Q: What's a typical presentation?
A : wireframes; clickable prototype; alpha app, something visual.
Q: What are # ♥ Δ ?
A : types of thought, or views.
Q: Why is feedback deemed to be the content?
A : feedback is more valuable content than the presenter's material,
which is a trigger eliciting original feedback expressed by us as a crowd.
The feedback is more valuable to everyone in the room than the presentation we've seen.

The host https://evolvingweb.ca/ invites you to come back other Mondays
after 5:31pm as it's their dropin-cowork time open to all.

(*) see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference : it's a normal way to find presenters and it's totally fine to start the event without having all timeslots (presenters) lined up in advance. Be ready to present and say so as early as possible.

Beginner? Yes! Add your voice. The experts gain during the time you
give your impressions, evaluating.
