To provide the most comfortable environment for attendees to practice their interview skills, we have set an attendee limit for our whiteboarding practice events to 100 attendees.

Requirements:
At a minimum, you will need a Zoom account. For the best experience, please aim to have a webcam, microphone, and an additional monitor if you have one. Also, if you like to draw and diagram, consider having a blank piece of paper and marker, or a whiteboard, that can be visible to your webcam. To share your code, be prepared to screen-share, or collaborate through a google doc or Repl.it.
